Abstract

A well-established reference, INFANTS AND TODDLERS: CURRICULUM AND TEACHING, 8th Edition, presents a child-centered approach for the child care provider called "conscious care giving." This important and well-rounded approach encourages a sense of empowerment and focuses on the respectful, purposeful, and careful handling of children in any child care setting. Reader friendly, realistic, and easily applicable to real life, the book emphasizes the child's growth and development, helping you discover how you can best and most effectively influence that development. This edition features new integration of NAEYC and DAP standards as well as new videos that bring concepts to life by showing actual teaching situations. Overviews of key child care philosophies as they relate to the child, the caregiver, and parent involvement are presented along with case studies and personal perspectives of child care professionals, helping you translate theory into practice.
