Dodge, Diane Trister; Dombro, Amy Laura; Colker, Laura J.
Information on how warm and responsive care can help shape infants' and toddlers' development and their ability to learn can be reassuring for concerned parents. This guide, in English and Spanish versions, presents quality child care as a partnership between the child caregiver and the parents with the primary goal of benefiting the child. The booklet describes procedures taken to ensure the child's safety in the child care setting, including accident prevention procedures, planning for emergencies, and helping children become aware of safety. The booklet also describes child care actions to prevent health problems, such as health screening, checking for good health practices, handling illnesses when they occur, and teaching good health practices. The booklet outlines what and how children learn and how caregivers/teachers and parents can work together. A section on learning through daily activities presents the types of everyday activities parents can expect in the child care setting, including toy play, art, imitating and pretending, stories and books, tasting and preparing food, sand and water play, music and movement, and outdoor play. The booklet concludes with a list of curricular and parent resources. (KB)
