Additional Book Details

"This volume is exemplary in synthesizing research and condensing pertinent data on early childhood services both for practitioners and policymakers." -Charles Bruner, Director, Child and Family Policy Center"Any school district struggling with low test scores, high mobility, and/or high poverty should consider the benefits of early intervention-and read this book." -Mathieu Aubuchon, Preschool Coordinator The Early Childhood Center at Gregory Hill, Westminster, CO Your research-based reference for developing quality early educational experiences! School and district administrators, as well as policymakers, are increasingly recognizing that early education and intervention services for young children have a direct and positive impact on later school performance and quality of life. But which programs and services should be operated and funded? To answer that question, this book highlights the principles that characterize effective practices and programs for children ages 3-8. Written specifically for busy administrators, Evidence-Based Practices and Programs for Early Childhood Care and Education synthesizes what works, what doesn′t, and what we still need to know based on the reviews of scientific literature by an expert panel of contributors. Key topics include:

Definition and assessment of readiness of children and schools
Early intervention for children in poverty, English language learners, and students with special needs
Publicly funded, home-based, school-age, and out-of-schooltime programs
The future of personnel preparation and professional development

The result is a highly readable presentation of the evidence needed to make informed practice, program, and policy decisions in early care and education.
