"Respect for infant-toddler development, and mindful caregiving practices for this age group, serve as the cornerstones for this textbook. In 1980 when this textbook was first published, infants and toddlers were scarcely mentioned in early childhood education. The existing curriculum focused on preschool children-3-, 4-, and 5-year olds. Society, however, was changing, and more children were entering out-of-home care at a younger age, and preschool teachers were experiencing new challenges. Traditional preschool curriculum, with circle time and group activities, did not fit the needs of 2-year-olds (and younger!). The authors of this book recognized that more specific curriculum was needed, and worked together to address these new and challenging issues in early care and education. The major theme of this textbook-the idea of respectful, responsive, and reciprocal adult-infant-toddler interactions-has been the same with each edition. The philosophy of Magda Gerber and the theory of Emmi Pikler provide the textbook with a unique approach while outlining well-established practices designed to promote infant and toddler well-being. Magda Gerber, a Los Angeles infant expert, came from Hungary. Her friend and colleague, Dr. Emmi Pikler, a theorist and researcher, also from Hungary, had established group care for infants and toddlers after World War II"--

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.
