More About Culture and Child Development in Early Childhood Programs by Carollee Howes; Sharon Ryan
 
 
 
Overview

Early childhood education programs are expected to provide exemplary care for all children--poor and affluent, children of color and White children--while also adapting care to include children's families and cultures. These two sets of expectations are often difficult for teachers and programs to meet. In this book, Carollee Howes shows how high-quality programs successfully adapt child development guidelines within cultural contexts, and why quality needs to be and can be measured in culturally specific ways. This important book:

  • Closely examines ECE programs considered exemplary for low-income children of color.
  • Shows how directors and teachers successfully use practices derived from their cultural communities to implement universal standards of child care.
  • Identifies the commonalities in good early childhood programs that are shared across class, race, and ethnic communities.
  • Offers best practices based on extensive assessments, interviews, and observations.
