Smith, Anne Read
This document is a handbook for helping children develop self-esteem through encouraging creative behavior in after school day care.

Twelve chapters cover the following topics: (1) the need for creative behavior in after school care; (2) understanding creative behavior; (3) preparing a safe physical environment; (4) setting limits and explaining consequences; (5) dealing with heckling and teasing in the classroom; (6) mistakes as tools for learning; (7) integration of experience; (8) planning the curriculum; (9) preparing for transitions; (10) team teaching; and (11) communicating with parents. The last chapter offers conclusions, questions, and exercises to encourage self-esteem through developing creativity. The document also includes background information on creative behavior techniques and strategies. (Contains 61 references.) (JW)
