A useful resource for teachers of young children, this guide covers aspects of children's development from infancy through 6 years; discusses the variety of learning environments in which children move and describes various classroom learning processes, objectives and strategies. Also included are options for parent involvement; an outline of teacher competencies and staff relationships; and a discussion of types of handicaps of exceptional children and the special needs of these children when they are integrated into regular classrooms. The guide is organized in an expanded outline form and combines both theoretical and practical considerations for designing and reevaluating early childhood education programs. Suggestions for parent materials and programs, classroom learning activities and arrangements, inexpensive materials, field trips, curriculum objectives, total and daily program designs, and teaching strategies are included within the format of the guide.
