Designed for teachers of 3- to 5-year-olds, this complete curriculum book focuses on how teachers can encourage, facilitate and stimulate children to learn and grow. The book identifies, explains and supports the major developmental tasks of preschool children, including adjusting to school, making friends, exploring roles, communicating, problem-solving and expressing feelings. It contains a comprehensive appendix, planning tools and an array of useful teaching strategies.

Each chapter discusses child development theory and relates theory to practice in a way every teacher can understand and implement. Planning pages, webs, lists of materials, equipment and resources, numerous activities for children, and comprehensive observation/assessment lists help teachers ensure a happy, healthy learning experience for every preschooler.
