Building off of author Doris Fromberg’s groundbreaking earlier work, The All-Day Kindergarten and Pre-K Curriculum presents a practical curriculum centering on how young children develop meanings. This is a fantastic resource for pre-and in-service early childhood teachers, administrators, and scholars.
This new edition contains an epilogue by Professor Dorothy Millichamp entitled 'Preschool Teaching: An Historical Perspective', which concentrates particularly on developments in the 1960s and on the goals of pre-school education in the 1970s. An introduction by Dr Mary L. Northway of the Brora Centre, and an updated, expanded bibliography are other features of this new edition.
The author discusses the qualities of the ideal nursery school teacher, and describes how daily life in the school can be planned so that good human relations develop between adults and children. The goals to be sought include the development of independence and the growth of the ability to recognize when help is needed and the willingness to seek and accept it.
