Infants and Toddlers: Development and Curriculum Planning
(ISBN-10: 1428318275 | ISBN-13: 9781428318274)
This book takes research-based practice to a new height by providing the evidence as well as the application of material to develop better practitioners. It is an up-to-date comprehensive view of infant and toddler development and how development serves as the basis for curricular planning. It provides specific chapters on inclusive curriculum planning for infant’s birth to 8 months, 8 to 18 months, and 18 months to 3 years in addition to chapters on childcare and general curricular planning. With a family-centered approach, the text highlights some of the cultural challenges in the field, and some of the issues that families and children are facing. It considers the challenges vulnerable families face as they rear infants and toddlers, and the challenges society itself faces in helping all infants and toddlers to reach their potential. Its organization has a domain specific approach (language, cognitive, and so on) to highlight learning in these areas but also presents together to address the whole child. It supports pre-service teachers in developing a personal philosophy of teaching and reflecting on their practice as a way of improving it. This text also tells the story of the people behind the practice: mothers in labor, fathers caring for young children, childcare providers, grandparents, and the infants and toddlers themselves. It is a text that challenges students to expand their knowledge while providing the bridge to meet the challenges in the field.
