Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0807750204, Paperback)

''Early childhood educators have waited for this book for a long time. Carollee Howes and her team have delivered a volume that sets the standard for understanding early childhood education in contemporary communities in the United States. This book will have immediate relevance for policy debates, for understanding the mechanisms of program effects, and for educators who wish to deepen their knowledge of practice.'' -- Robert C. Pianta, Director, Center for Advanced Study of Teaching and Learning, University of Virginia



Early childhood education programs are expected to provide exemplary care for all children -- poor and affluent; children of color and White children -- while also adapting care to include children's families and cultures. These two sets of expectations are often difficult for teachers and programs to meet. In this book, Carollee Howes shows how high-quality programs successfully adapt child development guidelines within cultural contexts, and why quality needs to be and can be measured in culturally specific ways.
