With the goal of maintaining settings most conducive to helping each child develop optimally, the essays in this book delve into realistic ways in which child care providers can move from providing inadequate or merely adequate day care to providing high quality center-based or family child care. Most of the 12 essays begin with a question or viewpoint that commonly comes up in on-site staff development discussions. The first essay, or chapter 1, deals with the issues surrounding non-parental care. Chapter 2 explores what babies need to develop optimal self-esteem, while chapter 3 examines where babies should be to develop optimum self-esteem, self-discipline, and good character. Chapter 4 discusses infant and toddler curriculum in family day care and other settings. Chapter 5 examines the development of character, self-esteem, and self-discipline, and chapter 6 explores the optimal infant-toddler environment and its role in building good character. Chapter 7 deals with respect for toddlers, teachers, and parents. Chapter 8 discusses toddlers' increasing social and emotional organization. Chapter 9 discusses language development. Chapter 10 discusses the importance of fun-filled friendship in developing children's self-discipline. Chapter 11 deals with discipline, and chapter 12 lists and describes 96 behaviors, characteristics, and achievements of optimally developing toddlers. (Dr)

Bridge-to-Reading. Section 3: Feelings, Thoughts, Underst andings, Solving Problems, Values by Polly Greenberg( Book )

1 edition published in 1973 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Bridge-to-Reading is a comprehensive, easy-to-implement reading readiness curriculum (for ages 2 1/2 -- 6) based on the premise that young children learn language and prereading skills most easily by "doing" and then learning to talk, write, and read about their own experiences. Each section in the series is presented in a separate notebook containing detailed suggestions for a variety of semi-individualized activities into which language learning is integrated in a natural, nonpressured way. This section includes ideas for discussions, activities, and role-playing situations to promote the child's understanding of self, sensitivity to others, and ability to accept and cope with socially unacceptable feelings.
