The formative years—ages three through five—are critical to building a solid foundation for children's long-term success. This foundational research manual:
  • Offers parents and community members practical guidelines informed by current theory and intervention design.
  • Establishes continuity of development from early and middle childhood through adolescence.
  • Presents a holistic approach to development by addressing the multiple influences and structures shaping children's lives.
If you are a professional whose work focuses on helping young children grow and thrive, this book shows how you can make important and lasting contributions. This title is essential reading for educators, social workers, researchers, developmental, clinical, and community psychologists, and policymakers.
