Making Links: A Collaborative Approach to Planning and Practice in Early Childhood Programs
This book is about creating an environment, experiences, interactions, and relationships that allow children (birth to age 5) in center-based and family child care programs to have authentic experiences that will promote their development and learning. To address planning and practice the authors zero in on knowing and respecting the individual child, the group, and working in partnership with families. Rather than focusing on educational activities per se, the emphasis is on paying attention to the childs whole experience in the program. The authors examine what you need to know about children and their families, how to translate that information into plans and experiences, and how to include parents in the process. The authors wrote this book to be a collaborative encounter with readers.
