Guides to Early Day Care & Teaching. Occasional Papers 18.
This practical guide to infant-child day care offers suggestions for teaching in three areas: basic care, free play and guided learning. The Basic Care section contains information on dressing, eating, and other routines. The Free Play section discusses arranging materials, fostering creative and conceptual learning, and supervising group play indoors and outdoors. The section on Guided Learning describes methods and materials for teaching children basic concepts through sensory motor play and for sequencing and monitoring the children's progress. This section also offers tabular curriculum guides on body image, transportation, and problem solving skills. Two additional sections discuss making homemade toys and give suggestions for working with parents. (Author/SE)
