This handbook, designed to assist a beginning Head Start caregiver, includes guidelines for planning and organizing class activities in order to meet the individual child's needs and interests.

Then it lists various self-selected activities a child might choose to participate in and describes the caregiver role in each. Presented are activities in the areas of art, block-building, games, housekeeping, playdough, science, waterplay, woodworking, mealtime, cooking experience, active play, field trips, rug time, favorite stories, and finger plays.
