The complete practical methods book that uses a developmental approach to educate readers about young children from infancy through age 5.
The thoroughly updated and revised Eighth Edition covers the same concrete, how-to information that students find so useful, but now in fewer chapters. While addressing daily issues such as naptime, toileting, and communicating with families, these authors also explain how to implement theoretical issues such as emergent curriculum and Vygotsky's notion of scaffolding to support children's learning. From discussions on child abuse to the fostering of cognitive skills, the hands-on authors give students an authentic experience in what it means to support the whole child emotionally, socially, cognitively, physically, and creatively.
