    Developmentally appropriate practice is so fundamental to the early childhood field that all new educators need a sound grasp from the very start. While DAP's basic concepts aren't difficult or arcane, they can be understood wrongly or incompletely—and often are! This engaging book describes the core concepts and makes them meaningful to everyday practice for preschool teachers. College instructors, directors, and trainers will find this an invaluable tool for introducing learners to the foundation of the early childhood field.

    Description & More Details

    Since the first edition in 1987, NAEYC's book Developmentally Appropriate Practice in Early Childhood Programs has been an essential resource for the early child care field. Fully revised and expanded, the 2009 version comes with a supplementary CD containing readings on key topics, plus video examples showing developmentally appropriate practice in action.

    Based on what the research says about development, learning, and effective practices, as well as what experience tells us about teaching intentionally, DAP articulates the principles that should guide our decision making. Chapters describe children from birth through age 8 in detail, with extensive examples of appropriate practice for infant/toddler, preschool, kindergarten, and primary levels.

    Age focus: 0-8. Softbound, 368 pgs., and CD.
