Many in our country now recognize the critical need for quality, affordable child care. This book discusses the qualities of an effective early child care program and the need to provide children with experiences that will prepare them for future emotional, social, and academic success.
By examining high-quality early child care within a real-life setting, this resource transcends the gap between the theoretical and the practical in the education of young children. It illustrates how to build a successful program, handle the inevitable challenges, and achieve and sustain positive results. Using their experience in child therapy and child development, the authors demonstrate how to:
- Create healthy relationships for children and adults
- Build on children’s sense of wonder and joy for learning in preparation for later academic experiences
- Use families’ ethnic/cultural diversity as a teaching tool
- Maintain professional standards for managers and staff
