From the Publisher

"The strength of Innovations is the wonderful integration of child development principles, theory, and practice. The result is a perfect blend of grounded knowledge, practical experience, and curriculum ideas that makes this a valuable resource for early childhood teachers." - Child Care Information Exchange

"This resource is so wonderful... this (is) a very easy and appealing curriculum to use...The topics covered in this curriculum are right on for children 3 to 5 years old. It covers all the interests and issues facing preschool children in a fun and interactive way. This resource will pave the way for children to transition easily into more formal education. Bravo!" - Jody Martin, Educational Consultant

"Comprehensive is such an apt word to describe the latest volume in the Innovations curriculum series. Blending child development theory with knowledge about best practices in classroom learning environments, observation and assessment, and parent partnerships, The Comprehensive Preschool Curriculum is an indispensable guide for preschool teachers to plan meaningful learning experiences for young children. The book will also serve as a terrific text for early childhood curriculum courses in preservice teacher education programs." - New Horizons
