Continue shopping

Description:

UPDATED 2008!

Although all standards are important, in essence, high quality, effective leadership and management refer to the oversight, organization, and execution of the content of all the other NAEYC Program Standards. Without strong leadership and management, it is virtually impossible to provide comprehensive quality service and to support staff efforts to meet the needs of children and families. This resource focuses on NAEYC?s ?Leadership and Management? Program Standard. The field of early childhood is in great need of leadership?people who can continue to advocate for young children and their families, people who have a voice and conscience about what is good for all children, and people who can strongly affect the future of early childhood care. Examine and enhance the leadership that you and your program provide, and find out what you can do to make the most significant impact.

Description:

UPDATED 2008!

Families offer to program staff a unique and invaluable perspective on their child?s behavior, developmental progress, and learning styles.

Teachers share the primary responsibility for establishing both types of relationships, and in each case, children benefit the most. This resource focuses on NAEYC?s Families and Communities Program Standards; use it to find out how you can get everyone more involved.

Creating an effective curriculum can be a daunting task, as it includes forming goals for children as well as planning the learning experiences necessary for children?s social, emotional, physical, language, and cognitive development. This resource focuses on NAEYC?s ?Curriculum? Program Standard. Be encouraged throughout these pages to improve your curriculum by keeping in mind that the best curriculum is created by teachers who act intentionally, consistently asking themselves what children need to learn, how children best learn, and how to help children build on what they know and what they can do.

Description:

UPDATED 2008!

The physical environment sets the stage and creates the context for everything that happens in any setting?a classroom, a play yard, a multipurpose room. A high-quality environment welcomes children; engages children in a variety of activities; provides space for individual, small-group, and large-group activities; and generally supports the program?s philosophy and goals. Ultimately, the physical environment must convey values and messages about who is welcomed, what is important, and what the beliefs are about how children learn. This resource focuses on NAEYC?s ?Physical Environment? Program Standard; use it to ensure that the physical elements of your program are sending the right messages.

Description:

UPDATED 2008!

Health includes complete physical, oral, mental, and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity. To benefit from education and maintain quality of life, children need to be as healthy as possible and to be able to depend on adults?who also are as healthy as possible?to make healthy choices for them and to teach them to make healthy choices for themselves. This resource focuses on NAEYC?s ?Health? Program Standard. Although some degree of risk taking is desirable for learning, a quality program prevents hazardous practices and environments. Use this book to ensure that your program is doing all it can.

Description:

UPDATED 2008!

Administrators and staff need to know not only how children are progressing but also what challenges they are encountering. Teachers working on this standard will benefit from integrating assessment into their day, rather than making assessment a large task to be attempted all at once. Assessments should occur within the context of reciprocal communications with families and with sensitivity to the cultural contexts in which children develop. This resource, focusing on NAEYC?s ?Assessment? Program Standard, will guide you toward understanding how to organize and systematize your assessments.

UPDATED 2008!

The criteria in the five NAEYC Early Childhood Program Standards that focus on children (Relationships, Curriculum, Teaching, Assessment, and Health) make clear the link between the quality of children?s experiences in school settings and the quality of the teacher. Teachers juggle many tasks, and those who purposefully use multiple instructional approaches optimize children?s opportunities for learning. This resource focuses particularly on NAEYC?s ?Teaching? Program Standard. Discussed here are developmentally, culturally, and linguistically appropriate and effective teaching approaches that enhance each child?s learning and development in the context of the program?s curriculum goals.
