Before we go any further: Are you buying from outside Australia? We would love to ship this book to you BUT you must be studying at an Australian institution to buy this title from us at this price. Why? Because when we process your order we are required to provide to our supplier a confirmation of your student name, student ID and the institution. You really need it? We CAN still sell to overseas students however we need to advise you of the (unfortunately) higher price after you place your order. You can then decide whether you'd still like to proceed or cancel the order. That's just how it is. (sigh...) And of course, we wish you all the best with your studies : )

Aligned around ten learning centers in a preschool classroom, PRESCHOOL APPROPRIATE PRACTICES, 5th Edition is a must-have resource for preschool teachers creating the learning environment in their classroom. Easy to read and full of practical ideas, this text helps you learn how to act as a facilitator of preschoolers' self-directed learning by setting up centers in the classroom. Creative ideas for involving children in all aspects of their learning, including rule making and curriculum planning, are found throughout. You'll also find many learning activities, including some incorporating children's books. Activities are based on the National Association for the Education of Young Children's (NAEYC) developmentally appropriate practice (DAP), a nationally recommended set of early childhood practices. Chapter summaries pull out key ideas that can be easily implemented in the classroom.
