Unique alignment of chapters for each of the 13 learning centers in a preschool classroom make Preschool Appropriate Practices, 3e a must have resource for preschool teachers. Emphasis is placed on setting up preschool centers for self-directed learning, treating the teacher as a facilitator. Creative ideas for involving children in all aspects of their learning including rule making and curriculum planning are found throughout the book. As the book title suggests, these activities integrate with the National Association for the Education of Young Children’s (NAEYC) developmentally appropriate practice (DAP), a nationally recommended set of early childhood practices.
