Time Tot was the name for Time Lord young. (PROSE: Big Bang Generation, AUDIO: Trial of the Valeyard, COMIC: Weapons of Past Destruction, WC: Shada) The Time Lord life cycle seemed to include a phase similar to human childhood. Like human children, Gallifreyan children slept in cribs. (TV: A Good Man Goes to War) Children were entertained with nursery rhymes (TV: The Five Doctors, AUDIO: Zagreus) and stories such as Snow White and the Seven Keys to Doomsday. (TV: Night Terrors, PROSE: Snow White and the Seven Keys to Doomsday) There were specialised books for Gallifreyan children, including Every Gallifreyan Child's Pop-Up Book of Nasty Creatures From Other Dimensions. (AUDIO: Shada, WC: Shada, PROSE: Shada) They were once physically children and that at least some live in homes with others of their own gender before going off to join the Academy or the army. (TV: The Sound of Drums, Listen) A Gallifreyan ninety years old might still be considered a "kid" (TV: The Stolen Earth), but after the age of two hundred years they wouldn't be seen as young. (TV: The Time Warrior)
The First Doctor played hide-and-seek with the Rani as a Time Tot, with his ninth incarnation recalling that his skill at finding her "drove her nuts". He held the Time-Tot hide and seek championship for forty-two years in a row. (COMIC: Weapons of Past Destruction)
In a tale told by the Valeyard himself, which the Sixth Doctor believed had a grain of truth to it, the Valeyard was created as a Time Tot on a mud planet orbiting Etarho during a period when the thirteenth incarnation of the Doctor was experimenting with ways to break the twelve-regeneration limit imposed on Time Lords by Rassilon. At the young age of twenty, the Valeyard was found wandering the mud swamps of the planet by a group of scavengers, who kindly gave him food to eat and, when they learned what race he belonged to, sent him to Gallifrey. The Time Lords examined the Valeyard's biodata and found that it was an exact match with the Doctor's sample. Knowing that this meant that the Valeyard was a temporal anomaly, they sent him to a Shadow House. (AUDIO: Trial of the Valeyard)
According to the Valeyard, there was a risk of emerging from a regeneration as a Time Tot rather than an adult Time Lord. (AUDIO: Trial of the Valeyard) Indeed, River Song recounted that she "was a toddler, in the middle of New York" following her first regeneration. (TV: Let's Kill Hitler)
