Discover who you are as an educator!   

The authors’ vision in writing this text was to teach others to work with young children.  This child-centered text, now in its eighth edition, continues to help students discover who they are as educators, and what they value for children rather than focusing exclusively on content and skills.  Embracing a constructivist philosophy, it provides a foundation for a career in early childhood that is built on respect for children, the importance of teachers' reflections on their own values and actions, and a clear presentation of principles and practice. 

Written in conversational and personal voice and appealing to a wide range of students, this text supports readers' personal and professional development.  The authors' unique talents as university and community college professors, teachers of young children, and national policy makers have come together to help students understand children and their important role in children's lives.
