The Early Years Matter: Education, Care, and the Well-Being of Children, Birth to 8 introduces current and future teachers, child care providers, and others interested in early childhood education to the importance of the early years in children's well-being and success.
Chapters provide evidence for why quality services matter across the early years—for babies and toddlers, preschoolers, children in K-3, children in low-income
families, children who experience violence and stress, children with disabilities, children
with challenging behavior, children in immigrant families and children in developing countries.
