Francis, Connie M.
Intended for 4-H participants who plan and implement activities in the area of child development, this booklet provides a study guide to help young learners: (1) gain understanding of a preschool child's physical, mental, social, and emotional growth; (2) learn to care for a preschooler and promote preschoolers' feelings of security and safety; and (3) choose types of play that preschoolers enjoy. Suggested projects; information about preschoolers' development; an observation form; guidelines on communicating with and caring for preschoolers; ways to help preschoolers learn through play; and guidelines for evaluating toys are provided. Sources of additional help with programs are listed. A "leader's guide" for both the preschooler and middle childhood units is appended. (RH)
