View all copies of this ISBN edition:

Written in a warm, engaging style, this book embraces the emergent approach to fostering cognitive skills in children from birth through age five. It provides a complete developmental approach to early childhood education, giving teachers the specific skills they need to teach the whole child-emotionally, socially, physically, creatively, and cognitively. The author believes that physical and emotional health are fundamental to the well-being of children and provides practical methods and materials that address the entire individual, not just curriculum topics. A strength of the book is while it focuses on the five developmental “selves” of children, it places them in the context of contemporary family life and the multicultural world of today. Included at no additional charge with every new copy of this book, the Early Childhood Settings and Approaches DVD consists of 8 video segments filmed in 2005 in various early childhood centers and schools in the Miami, Florida area. Web site links Offered at the end of each chapter for student exploration.

From the Back Cover:

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. 

This edition includes:

  • The special concerns of working with infants and toddlers
  • Expanded coverage of diversity-the impact of poverty on children and families, strategies for including children with disabilities in classroom activities, and a new Diversity assessment item at the end of each chapter
  • The importance of advocacy for children, families, and the profession
  • Supporting children's physical fitness to combat the growing health crisis presented by the increasing incidence of obesity in children
