Summary

The broad, comprehensive coverage in this market-leading text, is now more visually engaging and useful than ever. Written by one of the best-known authors in the field, this is the only book of its kind to provide chapters on child care and federal legislation while also offering foundational chapters and developmental chapters on infants through eight-year-olds. The broadest foundational coverage available is organized around seven core themes:Professionalism in Practice, Theory to Practice, Diversity, Family-Centered/Community-Based Practice, Timeliness, Developmentally-Appropriate Practice,andApplying Technology.The content is reinforced with a new DVD that allows students the opportunity to ls"seers" what they are learning about - not just read the content - using integrated margin notes. Eight videos illustrate key settings and approaches, in diverse environments. Now with a focus on how-to strategies and guidelines, the result is a much more applied book. For early childhood teachers or any childcare worker.
