Tender Care and Early Learning: Supporting Infants and Toddlers in Child Care Settings, 2nd Ed. This second edition of Tender Care and Early Learning describes HighScope’s active learning approach for very young children who are in the sensory-motor stage of development — the stage when children learn with their whole body and all their senses, and when they rely on trusted adults to support their learning adventures. Incorporating the latest research on infant and toddler development, this extensively revised and expanded manual provides both a rationale and specific strategies for each part of the Infant-Toddler Curriculum. FC-F1086 $44.95 J. Post, M. Hohmann, & A. S. Epstein. Soft cover, photos, 428 pages. 978-1-57379-583-8

Supportive Adult-Child Interactions
Within the security of trusting relationships, infants and toddlers develop curiosity, initiative, a sense of self, and a desire to explore their world. Adults can foster this development by responding to the young children in their programs with care and respect. In Part 1 of this program, you will learn how to create a climate of trust for infants and toddlers, form partnerships with children, and support children’s intentions. Part 2 provides information on establishing program policies that promote continuity of care. In Part 3, you’ll view several extended unnarrated scenes from HighScope programs illustrating strategies for developing supportive interactions with young children. In English and Spanish. DVD: FC-F1082 $44.95 Color, 53 minutes, Spanish subtitles, viewer guide included. 978-1-57379-546-3
