Teaching Young Children: An Introduction, Third Edition, provides an accessible and realistic introduction to the joys and challenges of working with children from birth through age 8 in today's dynamic early childhood education settings.

A Unique Approach: Five Foundational Themes

To give students a framework for understanding what it means to be an early childhood educator, the author weaves five critical components of early childhood education through the text:

  • child development
  • play
  • guiding children
  • working with families and communities
  • diversity
An Emphasis on Curriculum—and Play

This text includes six chapters devoted to curriculum for enhancing development and teaching the content areas. It is the only text of its kind with separate chapters on play, outdoor play, and indoor environments.

Concrete Applications

Explicit strategies are provided in many feature boxes so that students can apply theories and concepts in early childhood settings. Also, students generate their own applications in the "Multimedia Explorations and Activities" feature as they view video segments (provided to instructors), do research on the Web using selected content, and record responses on the Companion Website at

Instructor resources include:
  • Instructor's Manual and Test Bank
  • PowerPoint slides
  • ABC News/Prentice Hall Early Childhood Education videos
