Item #: 9906
# of Pages:60
Teachers who have specific preparation, knowledge, and skills in child development and early childhood education are more likely to engage in warm, positive interactions with children, offer richer language experiences, and create higher quality learning environments. This resource focuses particularly on NAEYC's "Teachers" Program Standard. Not to be confused with the "Teaching" Standard, this Standard highlights the importance of teacher education and training as well as the contributions of professional development to high-quality care, effective teaching, and children's development.
Updated in 2008, this is one of nine booklets addressing the Standards and Criteria specific to NAEYC Accreditation of early childhood education programs.
