Second Home:
A Day in the Life of a Model Early Childhood Program

Authors: Claire Copenhagen Bainer, Liisa Hale
Product Code: 135201
ISBN: 978-1-929610-92-1
Format: Book and DVD Set



Learn how to replicate a thoughtfully designed, developmentally appropriate learning environment—one in which young children are engaged in responsive, nurturing relationships with caregivers and peers. Second Home offers an intimate account of a typical day in such a setting. Age-specific chapters describe children's interactions with teachers and peers and the teachers' roles in creating a rich, harmonious environment for play. Also discussed are:

  • the history and theory behind play-based, child-centered teaching

  • the importance of routines, rules, and transitions

  • how to build trusting family-teacher relationships
  • how to train and inspire staff


The accompanying DVD offers on-site vignettes that vividly illustrate the teaching concepts, as well as a video that provides an overview of BlueSkies for Children, a culturally diverse early childhood program in Oakland, California. Age Focus: 0–5. DVD, 84 min., and softbound book, 296 pgs.
