The texts are designed to be used as a pre-service model, an in-service model or an annual all-day training plan. Focusing on the development of children from birth to age three, the first book offers teacher an in-depth guide to the underlying ages and stages, theories, and best practices of the early childhood field. The self-directed manuals offer 40-plus hours of instruction on such topics as: developmental tasks; using forms to document events, progress and interactions; using anecdotal observations; creating supportive learning environments; supporting emerging literacy; and developing activities and experiences that address the needs of infants and toddlers." - Curriculum Review Magazine
Children's Literature
With over 50% of all infants and toddlers in the United States in out-of-home child care, there is a great need to educate caregivers about this critical time of life for youngsters. This unique approach by two long time professionals in the early childhood field uses the "Innovations" approach created by them. The Innovations approach to infant/toddler development combines understanding in child development, best practices, behaviors in context and knowledge of myths and misunderstandings as an approach to successfully facilitating a child's growth and development through these stages. Based on the interactional theories of Brazelton and Greenspan, the Innovations approach believes that the quality of the interactions with each child is more important the activities that are planned for them. This workbook provides the steps necessary to implement this approach in an infant or toddler setting. Well written and researched, the book is an excellent guide for centers, both home-based and institutional, to implement this unique approach to care giving and educating. The approach requires careful observation of each child, the inclusion of the child's family in decision-making as well as basic understanding of child development in planning curriculum and environments. The book delineates each step in the process and the appendix includes a myriad of forms applicable to the process, such as family communication forms, observation forms, an outline of the Innovations model as well as sources for further information about early childhood education. A plus for all teachers of early childhood. Other books by these authors provide a self-guided approach for teachers to improve their infant/toddlercare giving skills. 2001, Gryphon House, $39.95. Ages Adult. Reviewer: Meredith Kiger AGES: Adult
