    The most pressing challenge in early childhood education today is to find a way to meet the standards within a developmentally appropriate approach.

This book includes lists of key content ideas—coordinated with learning standards in science, mathematics, social studies, and the communication arts—to guide teacher observations of, and interactions with, young children.
