Summary Written for educators, administrators, child caregivers, and parents, Developmentally Appropriate Practice provides the help essential for nurturing the development of children from birth to age eight. Practical examples show how to implement developmentally appropriate practices for real-life situations. From theory to practice, featuring: specific references from NAEYC's revised position on developmentally appropriate practice; a new chapter on defining play as the basis for developmentally appropriate practice; a new chapter on exploring the difference between teacher-directed methods of planning curriculum and the more appropriate curriculum that emerges; an emphasis on real-life situations that supports practical applications; dialogues and examples that encourage easy reading and enhance interest; and consideration of the whole child.
