The sixth edition of EARLY EDUCATION CURRICULUM: A CHILD'S CONNECTION TO THE WORLD focuses on the process of planning and implementing a curriculum, and setting up an inclusive child-centered environment. This text meets the needs of a diverse range of students and experienced teachers, helping them to make informed decisions about curriculum content as well as to develop creative thinking and the ability to effectively apply theory to an early childhood classroom setting.
