Learning key child care skills has never been so easy or so much fun! Three CD-ROMs simulate the effectiveness of personal coaching from a child care expert through narratives, video demonstrations and interactive games. This series is ideal for parents, child care providers, and students in education, the social sciences, and medicine who want to focus on children from infancy through school age. The author has covered such valuable topics as safety, nutrition, family, and guidance, as well as such areas as physical, cognitive, creative and social development. For each topic presented on the CD-ROM, nearly 10 pages of narrative initiate the presentation. This is followed by a video demonstration of child care skills as they relate to that topic, and fun interactive games that immediately test the user’s knowledge.

Features and Benefits
