For courses on the Guidance/Management of Young Children.

Using a holistic, ecological approach, this textbook provides clearly-written explanations on how guidance must be understood within the context of what we know about children, as well as what we expect them to learn.  

Guiding Young Children provides practical, down-to-earth information about child guidance, grounded in the latest theory and research.  The emphasis of the book is on developing human potential–helping children to become everything they can be.  There is a strong focus on considering a child’s developmental level as well as family and cultural context when planning environments and activities for young children. Simple, straightforward explanations and a clear organization make this text accessible and appealing.  Far from a dull, theoretical approach, this edition shows both students and practitioners how to do effective child guidance in the world the way it really is.
