Overview

This third edition offers a broadened course of study by presenting a logical progression of experiences and suggestions for creating optimum environments for young children. Caring for School-Age Children introduces students to the people in child care; the children; the families; and then shows how caregivers can help children in various competencies throughout different stages of childhood. Each chapter begins with a list of objectives and includes caregiver profiles which allows students to understand the roles of people in child care and their experiences in real life settings. The book is well-equipped with the newest information on social issues, developmentally appropriate practice, and gives constructive ideas for program planning, day-to-day activities, and implementing specific curriculums. Also discussed are benefits to using community resources, and national programs designed to improve the quality of the centers through accreditation, credentialing, and evaluation. Additional web site references, student activities, review questions, chapter summaries, and case studies make this text complete. Instructor support tools are also available; IML, CTB, and online resources.
