Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

This is a must-have book for any college course or program that wants its teachers to know how to intentionally set up engaging and appropriately challenging early childhood learning environments and to understand the evidence and reasons for why they’re doing it.  Covering each age group in early childhood--and enhanced by colorful, unique photos and the online MyEducationLab with videos, accompanying questions, and exercises to deepen understanding–- this text is a powerful resource for today’s early childhood professionals.  

            Organized by chapters on centers, this text helps pre-service and practicing teachers learn to create, maintain, and enrich indoor and outdoor learning environments to support children’s development from birth to age 8.  A key part of each chapter is the teacher’s role in scaffolding learning in the center.  The book covers foundational information to keep in mind in classroom practice--developmental and learning theories, current research, curriculum standards and outcomes, children’s interests and their motivation to play, children’s diversity, assessment of learning, and evaluation of the environment.  It also contains a wealth of practical ideas and tips, lists of materials, and engaging vignettes and examples from the author’s vast classroom experience.

The book is easy to read and understand for my Early childhood course. Our professor has used this text many times and she highly recommends this text.

The delivery time was right on time and there wasn't any damage to the book.
Thank you for the prompt service.
