Guia para los padres sobre educacion preescolar (A Parents' Guide to Early Childhood Education).
Dodge, Diane Trister; Phinney, Joanna
This handbook, entirely in Spanish, was originally intended for parents whose children attend programs which use "The Creative Curriculum for Early Childhood" (CCEC), but the information is also useful to parents whose children attend early childhood programs using other curriculum models based on child development theories. The purpose of the handbook is to explain ways parents and teachers can work together at home and at school to help children acquire the skills, attitudes, and habits to do well in school and throughout life. The guide explains the CCEC program's philosophy and goals. It describes what children are learning while engaged in particular CCEC program activities and what they learn from the environment, the daily schedule, conversations, and at home in the dining room, living room, kitchen, children's bedroom, bathroom, and outside. Concluding remarks stress that the key to providing successful learning experiences for young children is to figure out what interests the child and use those interests to engage him or her in actively exploring and learning about the environment. It is emphasized that every place is a learning environment for a child, regardless of where the family lives or in what kind of home the family lives. (RH)
