DOUBLE TAP TO ZOOM WITH PHONE OR TABLET Acknowledgments Thank you to Frances and Daniel Brunelle, who always told me I could. Thank you to Donna Hurley for her great support as a friend and business partner. To Paul Hughes, who continues to provide support and critical feedback. To Kyra Ostendorf, who does such amazing work and who was instrumental in this curriculum getting published. To Martin DeJesus, Philip Breen, Jamie Woodward, and Michael Messina, without whom I could not imagine writing anything. To Cathy Hill, who generously shared her knowledge and enthusiasm about chil- dren and the importance of creating environments that are both inclusive and accom- modating. Cathy, you are a truly extraordinary woman who enriches the lives of all the children who are lucky enough to come in contact with you. Finally, to all the family child care providers who have approached me during the last three years and had such kind things to say about how this curriculum has made your very difficult job a little easier. You have no idea how much that means to me. Thank you. xiii COPYRIGHTED MATERIAL
