    Children learn about sexuality the same way they learn about everything else—through words, actions, interactions, and relationships. Families are children's primary teachers about sexuality development, but early childhood teachers and directors also support children's healthy sexuality development as they interact with children, work with families, and plan programs. This book provides key information to both early childhood educators and family members about what is typical in young children and how to support them in this early and inquisitive stage.

    Most young children love vigorous physical activity, but research shows that they may not continue to be active throughout childhood and beyond if they lack a foundation of skills. Early childhood educators need to ensure children's learning of the physical skills as well as movement concepts necessary to start them toward active and healthy lives. This book provides guidance on what high-quality movement programs should include: environments designed for young children, effective curriculum components, developmental approaches to teaching, planned assessment, and more.
