Based on the training program Teaching Strategies developed for the United States military, Caring for Preschool Children is the most comprehensive training program available to help teachers develop the skills and knowledge necessary to obtain a CDA credential. In this first major upgrade since 1996, the content from all 13 modules is now in one single volume. Each of the modules in this new edition has been completely updated. The accompanying Skill-Building Journal includes learning activities that help build skills and knowledge as teachers work with children every day. The Trainer’s Guide offers specific suggestions for implementing the program and providing feedback to staff. It includes knowledge assessments, answer sheets, observation forms with checklists, and tracking forms.
