April, 2019 -The CYC is thrilled to be featured in the new textbook, Effective Practices in Early Childhood Education: Building a Foundation. This textbook is intended to be used by undergraduate students early in their programs to become early childhood educators. The book was written by Dr. Sue Bredekamp, a leading authority in Developmentally Appropriate Practice.
Video crews filmed classroom activities with children in preschool and kindergarten classrooms. They also filmed interviews with teachers and administrators from the CYC. The focus was on the developmentally appropriate practice and high-quality early childhood education that takes place at the CYC. Throughout the textbook, video examples are referenced and can be accessed by students, and questions and activities for the students are provided.
"We are excited that so many upcoming early childhood professionals will be able to see the thoughful practice of teachers at the CYC!" responded the Center for Young Children's director Mona Leigh Guha, PhD.
