The Creative Curriculum for Family Child Care.
Dodge, Diane Trister; Colker, Laura J.
Designed to provide practical and comprehensive assistance to family child care providers in a range of settings, this curriculum consists of two parts. Part 1, Setting the Stage, helps caregivers formulate a philosophy of child care, understand child development, prepare their homes, and plan their programs. It includes many ideas for making the home environment safe and inviting, selecting the right kinds of materials, managing the day, guiding children's learning and behavior, and building a partnership with parents. Part 2, Activities, offers ideas on ways to select materials and plan experiences that help infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school-age children grow and develop. The nine types of activities described in Part 2 are: dramatic play, blocks, toys, art, books, sand and water, cooking, music and movement, and outdoor play. (RH)
