Quality Programs That Care and Educate.
Smith, Anne B.
Childhood Education, v72 n6 p330-36 1996
Asks theoretical questions about child development and how to define quality contexts for it in light of New Zealand's requirement that early childhood education meet quality criteria. Discusses principles that should underlie good programs, including a sociocultural theory of development and children's interactions with both teachers and peers. Suggests that curriculum should lead rather than follow child development. (AA)
