Brookes Publishing Co
This book examines the relationship-promoting approach to child care. The authors use the metaphor of the dance to explain the give and take interactions between caregivers and children that help promote emotional, physical, cognitive, and language development. Throughout the book, programs from the United States and around the world are examined to highlight features that work. "Extending the Dance" gives early childhood professionals the tools they need to develop an environment that encourages development and attachment.
