A Piagetian-Based Curriculum for Toddlers.
Campbell, Mindy; Falender, Carol
This paper outlines a toddler day care curriculum, based on Piaget's developmental theory, which is suitable for implementation at a laboratory preschool or community college child care center. Implications of Piaget's theory for the curriculum of a toddler program are discussed. The specific program developed is described in terms of guidelines for arrangement of the environment, definition of teacher roles, development of open-ended curricula, decisions concerning developmental appropriateness, and individualization of curriculum and environment. Emphasis throughout the program is on process rather than product. Approximately half the paper consists of specific activities for toddlers accompanied by developmental goals relating the activities to Piagetian concepts. (Author/SB)
