Designed for students taking an introductory course in early childhood education, this text provides foundational material in parts 1 and 2, which are subsequently systematically integrated into the practical curriculum and instruction chapters in parts 3 and 4. The focus is on applying what is known about theory and development to practical teaching and learning activities. While the book contains information about a variety of educational philosophies, theories and opinions, it is based on the "Early Childhood Teacher Education Guidelines", as laid out by the National Education Association for Young Children (NEAYC). The underlying theme of these guidelines is developmental appropriateness: providing children with educational experiences that match their current level of development. An instructor's manual/testbank (ISBN: 0-07-835709-9) is also available.
