    Academy
    By Sharon Ritchie, Barbara Willer

    Families offer to program staff a unique and invaluable perspective on their child's behavior, developmental progress, and learning styles. Likewise, program staff who develop and maintain relationships within the larger community can provide better quality support and information to families. Teachers share the primary responsibility for establishing both types of relationships, and in each case, children benefit the most.

    Children’s interactions with their special grown-ups affect everything in their lives, especially in their earliest years. And the relationships between those special people matter, too. When adult connections are caring and strong, parents, caregivers, and directors are motivated and empowered to work together to help children thrive. The book describes this concept of relationship-based child care, what understandings and attitudes support such care, and the policies required to enact it in a center setting.

    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.
