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 examines why it's so important to try and care for children and teach them new skills in a highly stable environment. Various experts and caregivers share their thoughts about why this stability is critical to meeting children's physical, emotional, and cognitive needs. 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.
