Success Begins in the Cradle: A Curriculum for Infants and Toddlers in Daycare.
A Piagetian day care curriculum for infants and toddlers is presented. Six chapters, divided by developmental stage from birth to 24 months of age, discuss developmental characteristics of the child, suggest tasks for the caregiver to enhance social/emotional growth and language development, and describe appropriate games and activities. Additional color-coded sections provide fine and gross motor activities (including art and music) for groups of children, sample schedules and room arrangements, and checklists of developmental norms for use in evaluation. An appendix contains songs, fingerplays, poems, flannel stories, record lists, and book lists. (BRT)
