Early childhood development refers to the skills that children acquire within their first five years of life, which lay the foundation for future learning. Children need care and support to stimulate their growth and healthy development. The stimulation of language, understanding, personal, social and motor skills of the child are important at an early age and it is one of the primary physicians’ responsibilities to give proper advice to parents on how to promote their children’s physical and mental development. Enhancing Early Child Development: A Handbook for Clinicians is a quick reference guide for pediatricians, clinicians, and pediatric nurse practitioners that aims at promoting early stimulation and intervention for optimizing development of normal children as well as children with cerebral palsy and autism. Designed to be used in daily practice, this book will provide counsel for clinicians, parents and caregivers and advise them on the appropriate methods to enhance their child’s development at different ages based on their health condition. In addition, Enhancing Early Child Development: A Handbook for Clinicians, incorporates a summary of the manual entitled "Counsel the Family on Care for Child Development" developed by UNICEF and WHO, which addresses child development in low resource countries.

Noting that teachers and caregivers need an understanding of the fundamentals of developmentally appropriate practices in order to implement programs that meet the needs of young children, this revised guide serves as a practical tool for staff trainers and supervisors in early childhood education. The guide addresses five specific groups of early childhood professionals: caregivers of infants in center-based settings; caregivers of toddlers in center-based settings; teachers of preschoolers in center-based settings; staff working with school-age children in center-based settings; and providers who care for infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school-age children in family child care homes. Chapter one of the guide addresses standards of quality, curriculum, parent involvement, and provides resources for establishing a firm foundation. Chapters two through five are devoted to infants, toddlers, preschoolers, and school age children, respectively. Chapter six addresses family child care. Each of these chapters offers guidance on five critical program components of high-quality care and education: (1) arrangement of the environment to promote positive behavior and learning; (2) selection and display of equipment and materials to address children's developmental skills and reflect their interests; (3) daily schedules and routines designed to respond to children's developmental needs; (4) daily program of activities and opportunities offered that promote children's learning and growth; and (5) supportive interactions in which adults respond to children, guide their behavior, encourage their explorations, and promote social development.

The Committees report examines the wide range of outdoor learning experiences, from lessons held within school grounds to residential expeditions abroad, and considers the place of outdoor learning in the curriculum from foundation stage to higher education. Issues discussed include: the value of outdoor learning and the decline of opportunities for educational opportunities outside the classroom; the barriers that deter schools from teaching outside the classroom, including perceptions of risks in school trips, the resources and curriculum time available for such trips, availability and costs involved; policy options for the Department for Education and Skills to help encourage schools improve and expand provision for outdoor learning; and funding implications. The Committees recommendations include that the DfES should issue a Manifesto for Outdoor Learning which gives all students the right to outdoor learning and which should attract a similar funding level to the music manifesto (around £30 million) in order to deliver real change.

Educating dual language learners (DLLs) and English learners (ELs) effectively is a national challenge with consequences both for individuals and for American society. Despite their linguistic, cognitive, and social potential, many ELsâ€"who account for more than 9 percent of enrollment in grades K-12 in U.S. schoolsâ€"are struggling to meet the requirements for academic success, and their prospects for success in postsecondary education and in the workforce are jeopardized as a result. Promoting the Educational Success of Children and Youth Learning English: Promising Futures examines how evidence based on research relevant to the development of DLLs/ELs from birth to age 21 can inform education and health policies and related practices that can result in better educational outcomes. This report makes recommendations for policy, practice, and research and data collection focused on addressing the challenges in caring for and educating DLLs/ELs from birth to grade 12.

Written for students of early childhood education and child development as well as for practicing teachers, this book focuses on two basic questions concerning personal/social goals for early childhood education. These questions are (1) What skills do we want to nurture in children? and (2) How do we accomplish these objectives? The text begins with an explanation of a social/cognitive model that puts emphasis on forming ideas, using intuition, and solving problems. This approach is then applied to five general personal/social areas: body and sensory awareness, emotions, friendship and affiliation, conflict and cooperation, and kindness. Suggested classroom activities, ideas for improving relationships, and references are identified for each of these five skill clusters. In addition, suggestions for learning activities concerning "self-studies" and "child studies" are distributed throughout the text to encourage readers to relate materials to themselves as well as to the children they work with or observe. All together, more than 150 learning activities are provided, 111 of which are for children. Activities for children state purpose, indicate setting and materials, describe the activity, and provide additional suggestions for effective implementation. (RH)

This book argues that independence in the classroom should be seen as beneficial for learners and also for teachers. Jill Williams makes a compelling case for a climate in which decision making is valued, where children are enabled to solve problems and where children and adults respect each others point of view, arguing that this will be a climate in which independence flourishes. In turn the benefits in terms of teaching and learning will be apparent for both the children and the teachers.
