This book is a “how to” curriculum guide for appropriate practices when working with very young children in the early childhood learning environment. Incorporating the developmental philosophies of Emmi Pikler, Magda Gerber, Erik Erikson, and Maria Montessori, it promotes respectful and responsive care giving to foster competence and independence commensurate with each child’s level of ability. Topics include care giving routines, environments, caregiver/child interactions, and the role of parents.
