Children's LiteratureThis well-written book provides guidelines for childcare workers but is a plus for parents who plan to use a childcare facility for their child. Beginning with an introduction that explains the importance of transitions in a child's life, it goes on to discuss how to make transitions easier for infants and toddlers in your care and discusses general principles and techniques for working with young children, as well as the importance of staff training. Suggestions grounded in early childhood best practices, as well as activities, are provided for experiences such as arrival, mealtimes, diapering, playtime, switching activities and so on. The goal of developing an independent, well-adjusted child is evident. Occasional black-and-white photos reinforce the idea of teamwork between parents and staff in providing a nurturing environment. 2005, Gryphon House, Ages Adult.
