From the Back Cover:

Roopnarine and Johnson’s comprehensive and authoritative volume is the best preparation tool on the market for preparing future early childhood educators—tomorrow’s leaders in the field—with the knowledge necessary to meet the ever-changing needs and challenges of teaching in today’s world. 

 

Divided into four parts, its chapters are written by over 32 experts in the field. These key authors do an impressive job of covering a variety of approaches to teaching, the major early child education curricula, and the history of the program’s development—giving a solid background to the historical foundations as well as the philosophy and theory behind the applications described.

 

With the strongest coverage given to the most current trends and issues in the field of early childhood education, the sixth edition has been thoroughly revised and expanded, including new chapters on the Creative Curriculum and assessment, and a greater focus on promoting multicultural competence.
