  • Learn to appreciate the uniqueness and diversity of all children and families and concrete teaching strategies with the Diversity Tie-In feature found in every chapter.
  •  Learn from the best of the best in the field and explore early childhood education “up close,” to see what teaching young children is really like. Professionalism in Practice feature in every chapter spotlights voices of award-winning teachers, sharing their philosophies, and practices, addressing a broad-range of topics, such as character education, conflict resolution, brain research, and improving mental health. 
  • Understand age ranges of children through snapshots of several children’s characteristics, capabilities, and individual differences.  Portraits of Children features examine several individual children in each age group–infants and toddlers, preschools (ages 3-5), kindergartners, and primary grade children (ages 6-8)–and questions about developmentally appropriate practice to help teachers begin to tie age-related expectations and differences, to teaching practice.
  • Develop your competencies and skills  the key tasks expected of an early childhood educator. With the Competency Builder features, you’ll learn step-by step enumerated strategies, guidelines, or steps to walk through the details of key tasks, such as observation, planning lessons, and how to create a multicultural classroom.      
  • Be encouraged to see inclusion as the norm, rather than the exception. The full integration of multicultural and diversity topics throughout the text, including a chapter on appropriate education for young children with special needs promotes inclusion as the standard in early education today.
  • Actively engage with chapter content to reinforce the learning experience with helpful suggestions in the Application Activities found at the end of each chapter.
  • Learn to make important professional decisions based on NAEYC’s Code of Ethical Conduct. Real-life scenarios presented in the Ethical Dilemma section featured in each chapter will prepare pre-service teachers to bravely and professionally face these types of situations if or when they arise. 
  • Become familiar with professional recommendations and expectations of the field. The NAEYC Code of Ethical Conduct document is included in the appendix.
  • Discover how the text’s content is linked to the current Standards. A helpful guide, the Correlation to NAEYC Standards for Early Childhood Professional Practice is prominently featured in the text.
