Summary:

Each of the guide's modules details module outcomes, key concepts, and background information. Module 1 addresses getting to know each child and gives staff an overview of the ecological model of child development, allows staff to apply the model, and reviews what staff already know about the interrelated nature of child development. Module 2 addresses creating environments that support children's growth and development. This module encourages staff to create safe and healthy indoor and outdoor environments that support the developmental characteristics typical of children of different ages. Module 3 addresses planning schedules, routines, and transitions, by focusing on enhancing the staff's capability to plan balanced schedules that match children's developmental stages and support their growth. Module 4 addresses using child development to plan activities. This module involves staff in planning activities that allow children to participate in their own unique ways, in accordance with their individual interests, abilities, and skill levels. The guide's six appendices provide participants with physical, cognitive, social, and emotional child development information and activities that can be used as resources on the job.
