Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Written by the authors of The Comprehensive Infant Curriculum and The Comprehensive Toddler Curriculum, this title is designed as a guide for professional development for Innovations: The Comprehensive Preschool Curriculum. Designed as one hour modules, beginning teachers will be exposed to how children learn, creating appropriate learning environments, including parents, basic health and safely issues, as well as creating learning opportunities. Based on sound early childhood principles, the 43 modules provide the trainer with well-organized, easy-to-follow, interactive activities to make optimum use of the curriculum. The one-hour length is realistic and could be easily scheduled before or after regular preschool hours. There are checklists, a reproducible certificate, a glossary and plenty of usable forms provided. A useful addition to any program using the Comprehensive Preschool Curriculum. 2004, Gyphon House, Ages Adult.
