Beginnings & Beyond is designed to assist students in gaining essential knowledge and skills to become effective, competent teachers and caregivers. In this well-organized and dynamic presentation, this text addresses the fundamentals in early childhood education-from its history to present issues and future trends. With an emphasis on multiculturalism and NAEYC's developmentally appropriate practice, this edition promotes a "both/and" viewpoint, maintaining that there is more than one correct way to care for and educate young children. This is stressed in areas of early literacy, spiritual development, discipline, diversity and anti-bias strategies and family relationships. Expanded information on curriculum, along with concepts of multiple intelligence, ecological theory and NAEYC's Code of Ethical Conduct, highlight the importance of maintaining an awareness of each child's needs and interests. This well-organized material is enhanced by a host of sidebars, photos, chapter activities, integrated technology and more.
