Synopsis by Elizabeth Smith
This 13-part series examines the most important developmental changes children experience between birth and the age of five, so that caregivers can better meet their changing needs. This volume looks at the different ways that caregivers and educators can try to increase a child's mental strength and learning capacity. New curricula are examined and compared to the standard types used in the past to see which ones might be more effective in various settings. Host Dr. Joanne Hendrick, author of The Whole Child, is a professor emerita of Early Childhood at the University of Oklahoma in Norman, OK. A panel of highly distinguished childhood education and child development experts contributed to the design and content of this program. The series was filmed in a variety of preschools, Head Start classrooms, and private homes being operated for childcare and schooling purposes.
