How do I make lesson plans for infants and toddlers?

I have a job interview for a position as an assistant teacher in an infant/toddler daycare. I have a degree in child psychology and lots of child care experience. But, how do I make lesson plans for infants and toddlers? Is it just a list of activities? Why have lesson plans for such young children? Are infant/toddler schedules that structured at a daycare center?
