This Canadian text covers developmentally appropriate curriculum in all developmental domains – physical, cognitive, affective – for children from ages two to six years. Designed to help students and practitioners formulate an approach to developmental curriculum planning and implementation, this text uses play-based methods as the medium for learning. The pedagogy builds on strategically planned learning centres (e.g., the daily living centre, the active role play centre, the quiet thinking centre) to provide an experimental context for learning through play. The textbook leads students through the steps involved in planning learning environments and curriculum that capitalize on play to facilitate children’s achievement of explicit developmental outcomes that are the foundation of learning success in school and throughout life.
