Combining a child-centered philosophy with problem-solving strategies and a thorough discussion of diversity,Infants, Toddlers, and Caregiversoffers an ideal introduction to curriculum and care for infants and toddlers. The approach to caregiving that underlies the text is based on a combination of Magda Gerber’s philosophy and that of her late colleague, Emmi Pikler: both pioneers taught caregivers how to respect young children and stressed the need to integrate (1) concepts of child development with caregiving, (2) knowledge of play as curriculum, (3) the physical and social environment, and (4) adult relations.Infants, Toddlers, and Caregiversapplies this approach in a practical, meaningful way for students and faculty in introductory early childhood courses.

This volume extends the knowledge base supporting research-informed child care for infants and toddlers, while simultaneously highlighting areas of study ripe for future research. The authors demonstrate from a systems perspective, that the experiences and outcomes of very young children in child care are influenced by characteristics of and interactions between the children, adults, and settings. Varying methodological approaches as well as the utilization of newer data collection instruments inform the field’s understanding of current practices and procedures while offering guidance for future programming and policy. In turn, the chapters highlight a plethora of open questions and a need for a new generation of research to support the field of infant/toddler care. Future challenges are evident in the recognition of the inadequate nature of our current measures of child outcomes and classroom processes, the field’s unmet promise to incorporate interdisciplinary perspectives, and the need for newer methodological designs that blend the strengths of quantitative and qualitative approaches. These issues are important given the growing demand for infant/toddler care and the increasing recognition of the unique role of this age period in serving as the foundation for all later development. This book was originally published as a special issue of Early Education and Development.

Based on experiences gained at the Palo Alto Infant-Toddler Center and the view that quality child care for infants and toddlers depends upon nurturing, long-term connections with their caregivers, other children, and their families, this book presents strategies for interacting with young children that support the developing child as well as the caregiver learning on the job. Chapter 1 of the book, "Reviewing the Foundation," discusses the 10 principles guiding respectful caregiver interactions with infants and toddlers and 7 strategies for applying the principles in everyday work with children. These strategies include observing individual children to provide for optimal stress, modeling the desired behavior, acknowledging children's feelings, anticipating transitions, helping children articulate needs and wants, offering real choices, and setting consistent limits. Chapter 2, "Planning Environments To Support Infants' and Toddlers' Learning," explores infant/toddler everyday behaviors, and ideas for planning environments that are sensitive to learning and that enable quality interactions, thus making the caregiver's work more enjoyable. The model presented in this chapter is organized by the "Three C's": (1) children's Curiosity; (2) Connections with others; and (3) the physical Coordination necessary for skill integration. Also discussed are problems arising when caregivers do not include infant/toddler development in planning the care environment. Chapter 3, "Planned Experiences for Infants and Toddlers," comprises the bulk of the book and contains planned experiences for small groups organized by developmental age: infant, infant/toddler, and toddler. Each experience is presented with a brief description, list of materials, procedures, other things to think about, and a scenario recounting a real interaction during that experience. (KB)
