  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.
