Stemming from the core idea that infant and toddler care should be based on building relationships, this curriculum provides a foundation for staff development.

Examines key quality indicators; discusses curriculum components; describes how to use it to make decisions throughout a typical day; and presents goals and objectives for caregivers. Section 2, "Who's Who in a Quality Program," focuses on building relationships with children and their families, child development in the first three years, stages of parenthood, special family concerns related to child care, cultural influences, involving men in child care, and building a community support network. Section 3, "Putting Quality into Action; The Big Picture," focuses on six components of quality, planning and evaluating, individualizing the program, creating a welcoming environment, ensuring children's safety, promoting children's health, and guiding children's behavior. Section 4, "Putting Quality into Action: Routines Day by Day," examines the daily routines of greetings, diapering and toileting, eating and mealtimes, sleeping and naptime, and getting dressed, and offers suggestions for helping children learn through the routines. Section 5, "Putting Quality into Action: Activities Day by Day," considers how to set the stage and promote play and learning in toy play, art, imitation and pretend, stories and books, tasting and preparing food, sand and water play, music and movement activities, and outdoor play. Appendices include a self-assessment for caregivers, safety and health checklists, a recommended immunization schedule, and intervention and supplemental resources. (Kdfb)

The what, why, and how of high-quality early childhood education : a guide for on-site supervision by Derry Gosselin Koralek( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 1998 in English and held by 406 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Noting that teachers and caregivers need an understanding of the fundamentals of developmentally appropriate practices in order to implement programs that meet the needs of young children, this guide serves as a practical tool for staff trainers and supervisors in early childhood education. It addresses four specific groups of early childhood professionals: caregivers of infants in center-based settings, caregivers of toddlers in center-based settings, teachers of preschoolers in center-based settings, and providers who care for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school-age children in family child care homes. Chapter 1 discusses seven indicators of a quality program and lists criteria of an appropriate curriculum. Chapters 2 through 5 are devoted to infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and family child care, respectively. Each of these chapters offers guidance on five components of high-quality care and education: (1) arrangement of the environment to promote positive behavior and learning; (2) selection and display of learning materials that address children's developmental needs and reflect their interests; (3) daily schedules and routines designed to respond to children's developmental needs; (4) daily programs of activities and opportunities that promote children's learning and growth; and (5) supportive interactions in which adults respond to children, guide their behavior, and promote social development. Each chapter includes a list of resources. (Tjq)

The guide gives particular emphasis to a carefully organized, rich environment.

Part 2 provides specific workshop outlines and handouts for providing training sessions on the Creative Curriculum.

Constructing curriculum for the primary grades by Diane Trister Dodge( Book )

2 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There is a growing consensus among educators that a major reason why traditional curriculum approaches have failed is that they are not based on knowledge of what is age-appropriate or individually appropriate for young children. This book provides practitioners with a practical framework for making curriculum effective and responsive for children in the primary grades. Part 1 presents the six teaching strategies for constructing and implementing such a curriculum: (1) knowing the children by understanding their developmental and individual characteristics as well as their cultural context; (2) building a classroom community that is able to address children's social, emotional, and cognitive development; (3) structuring the classroom and involving children in it; (4) guiding children's learning by encouraging their participation; (5) assessing children's learning; and (6) building a partnership with a significant adult in the child's home life. Part 2 of the book shows how the five subject areas of curriculum content--language and literacy, mathematical thinking, scientific thinking, social studies, and the arts and technology--can be taught within a developmentally appropriate framework. Lists of resources and references appear throughout the book. (Bac)

A parent's guide to early childhood education by Diane Trister Dodge( Book )

10 editions published between 1990 and 2003 in 3 languages and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This handbook was originally intended for parents whose children attend programs which use "The Creative Curriculum for Early Childhood" (ccec), but the informaton is also useful to parents whose children attend early childhood programs using other curriculum models based on child development theories. The purpose of the handbook is to explain ways parents and teachers can work together at home and at school to help children acquire the skills, attitudes, and habits to do well in school and throughout life. The guide explains the ccec program's philosophy and goals. It describes what children are learning while engaged in particular ccec program activities and what they learn from the environment, the daily schedule, conversations, and at home in the dining room, living room, kitchen, children's bedroom, bathroom, and outside. Concluding remarks stress that the key to providing successful learning experiences for young children is to figure out what interests the child and use those interests to engage him or her in actively exploring and learning about the environment. It is emphasized that every place is a learning environment for a child, regardless of where the family lives or what kind of home the family lives in. (Rh)
