Developmentally Appropriate Parenting

ABOUT Patricia Anderson

Patricia Anderson



This book outlines a plan for adapting the best practices of the early childhood profession for use at home. It talks about ways of thinking about childhood and about child development that inspire teachers at top-quality childcare centers and preschools. And it considers the ways in which teachers and parents can work better together to nurture children's learning and development. The basis for this conversation is something called "developmentally appropriate practice" or DAP. In this book, parents and teachers together will bring DAP home. They will invent Developmentally Appropriate Parenting.
