006: Child, Family, and Community Relationships | Week 3
“NAEYC’s vision in terms of early childhood education is to provide access for all children to a safe and accessible, high-quality early childhood education that includes a developmentally appropriate curriculum; knowledgeable and well-trained program staff and educators; and comprehensive services that support their health, nutrition, and social well-being, in an environment that respects and supports diversity.”
—NAEYC Vision Statement
This week, you will explore the impact that early childhood programs can have on young children’s development, and how you as a professional may use this understanding to help positively impact children and families you will work with in the future.
Your Action Plan this week combines information you learned from last week’s readings with information you will learn this week about responsibilities of early childhood professionals in safeguarding young children. For your third Action Plan, you will identify procedures and strategies for addressing the issue of child maltreatment.
