Developmentally appropriate practice is the foundation on which quality early learning is built. The fourth edition of this classic, influential text addresses developmentally appropriate practice within the context of the ever-changing and evolving world of early childhood education. With a strong focus on equity and teaching and supporting all children, it underscores the importance of social, cultural, and historical contexts of development.

Review Highlights:

The book is thoughtfully constructed and has many helpful diagrams, appendices, and online resources that can help the reader delve further. This NAEYC text takes into account the entire experience of an early childhood educator and this is appreciated. Developmentally Appropriate Practice is a great volume to keep in the classroom for use as a reference.

This is a thorough and complete volume on the underpinnings of early childhood education. This is a text aimed at students within a program for Early Childhood educators.

Developmentally Appropriate Practice in Early Childhood Programs is a comprehensive text that supports educators and the trainers of educators in the most current research and teaching methods. This text would be appropriate for teachers, professors, and interested parties when considering early childhood placements for children. This book is set up to support group learning through a book study format or individual study with reflection questions at each chapter.

As a person with pedagogical education and training, I find this information as very useful and research based. It has chapters for appropriate practices, curriculums, community creation around developing children and overall a well-rounded wealth of information.

I really liked that this book is a result of work of multi-disciplinary team of educators, and each chapter is written by a different author or a group of authors.

I would highly recommend this book for Early Childhood teachers and caregivers as an expert reference material for developmentally appropriate practices.
