Summary

Combining a child-centered philosophy with problem-solving strategies and a thorough discussion of diversity, Infants, Toddlers, and Caregivers offers an ideal introduction to curriculum and care for infants and toddlers. The approach to caregiving that underlies the text is based on a combination of Magda Gerber's philosophy and that of her late colleague, Emmi Pikler: both pioneers taught caregivers how to respect young children and stressed the need to integrate (1) concepts of child development with caregiving, (2) knowledge of play as curriculum, (3) the physical and social environment, and (4) adult relations. Infants, Toddlers, and Caregivers applies this approach in a practical, meaningful way for students and faculty in introductory early childhood courses.
