Abstract:
The teaching of young children has been of varying interest to educators, but with as many as 62% of women with children under the age of six in the workforce early childhood education in all-day programs assumes added significance. While many good quality curriculum guides are available for half-day programs there are few for all-day programs. This curriculum guide for an all-day program for three and four year olds addresses the physical learning environment of the center and the role of the teacher as well as the written program. A set of goals encompasses the entire day, acknowledging the role of the center in socialization and acculturation. Sample plans and evaluation techniques show clearly how these goals may be accomplished. It is hoped that such a curriculum guide may enable the non-education major to achieve an excellent program which will foster the social, emotional, cognitive and physical growth of the children.
