All About Child Care and Early Education, Second Edition, is a comprehensive resource for child care practitioners—or those looking to become child care practitioners—including teachers, care givers, family child care providers, administrators, and directors.

This newly revised edition covers the basics of early education and care: providing safe, healthy, and appropriately stimulating learning environments; child development and developmentally appropriate practices and curricula in all domains (physical, cognitive, language, social-emotional, and creativity), positive guidance strategies, partnering with families, child assessment and program management, and professionalism. Filled with a plethora of practical suggestions for setting up classrooms, developing curricula for young children, meeting children’s social-emotional needs, and working effectively with parents and staff for the Child Development Associate degree, this book will prepare students for diverse roles as educators of children ages 0-5.
