Overview

SAFETY, NUTRITION, AND HEALTH IN EARLY EDUCATION, Sixth Edition, uses theory, practical applications, and resources to prepare early childhood education students for a career in working with children from birth to age eight in multicultural and socioeconomically diverse early childhood settings. This text emphasizes healthy development, including environmental health and safety, active supervision, and how brain development can be affected by issues surrounding safety, nutrition, health, child maltreatment, and mental and emotional health. It also fully integrates NAEYC, DAP, and AAP/APHA professional standards throughout, and includes strategies for how to engage diverse families from various backgrounds and beliefs, and also those whose children have special needs.

  • Reality Check boxes address current issues that have an impact on the well being of children. They bring an in-depth approach to some of the more critical areas affecting children and early childhood education environments today.
  • Vignettes, now called Case In Point, are located throughout each chapter so that students can “observe” stories based on real-life events in culturally diverse settings.
  • What Would You Do? boxes located in the text's margins allow students an opportunity to reflect on how the information might pertain to their work and career situations.
  • TeachSource Videos, introduced in the text and viewable online, feature footage from the classroom to help students relate key chapter content to real-life, multicultural scenarios. Critical thinking questions after each video provide opportunities for in-class or online discussion and reflection.
  • Each major section of each chapter ends with a Key Concept box that summarizes the section's important points.
  • Important terms are highlighted in color in the text and defined in the margin on the page where they first appear. There is also a comprehensive glossary found at the end of the book.
  • A chapter summary, critical-thinking questions, activity ideas, and case studies at the end of each chapter offer opportunities to review, reflect, and apply the material.
  • The book's CourseMate website provides additional resources and activities, including quizzes and flashcards.
  • Learning outcomes at the beginning of each chapter correlate with main headings in the chapter to highlight what students need to know, understand, and be able to apply after reading the chapter.
  • Coverage of early childhood standards helps students make connections between professional standards and the content in each chapter.
