Guiding Young Children : A Problem-Solving Approach
"Guiding Young Children" is a sensitively written, child-centered introduction to guidance for teachers and caregivers in daycare and preschool settings. It offers practical applications and helpful advice on child behavior, safety, health, and learning. The objective is to build on the developmental needs of the children, providing children with freedom and safety, developmentally appropriate learning opportunities, and the tools needed to accept responsibility at their own level. An extensive art program reinforces learning with over 100 photographs of children and teachers in their daily routines, and illustrations of posters, charts, and graphs.
