All About Child Care.
Segal, Marilyn, Ed.; Manburg, Abbey, Ed.
This resource book for child care practitioners has been written for administrators, nursery school teachers and preschool or Head Start teachers who are interested in practical suggestions (1) for setting up classrooms, (2) for developing a curriculum for infants, toddlers and preschool children, (3) for meeting the social-emotional needs of children, and (4) for working effectively with parents and staff. "All About Child Care" is written in six acts. The first act provides the history and theory that places child care in a broad context. The second act focuses on setting up effective indoor and outdoor child care environments. The third and fourth acts focus on curriculum and on providing clear-cut guidelines for working with infants, 1-year-olds, 2-year-olds and preschool children. The fifth act describes the social and emotional characteristics of young children and provides ways of avoiding conflict and helping children feel good about themselves. The final act discusses ways of working effectively with staff and parents and describes techniques for evaluating children, teachers and the program. The suggestions offered have been implemented and validated at the Nova University Mailman Family Center and Lower House of the Nova University School. (Author/RH)
