The Child Care Provider: Promoting Young Children's Development
Carol S. Klass
This book examines the critical relationship between child care providers and the young children they care for and teach. It offers recommendations to turn everyday situations into opportunities for development, such as fostering language and communication skills, providing appropriate guidance and discipline, and using play to encourage learning. Strategies are provided for infants, toddlers, and children from birth through age 5. Along with an extended discussion on research on child development and effective caregiving practices, the book provides compelling vignettes depicting both child-caregiver interactions and caregivers coming to understand their work. Also included are extended interviews with child care professionals that provide real-world perspectives on why they chose their career and how they face the challenges of work while staying motivated. (Contains approximately 240 references.)
