DAP Core Concept 3: Knowing what is culturally important
Knowing what is typical at each age and stage of early development is crucial. This knowledge helps us decide what experiences are best for a child's learning and development.
What we learn about specific children helps us teach and care for each child as an individual. By continually observing children’s play and interaction with the physical environment and others, we learn about each child’s interests, abilities, and developmental progress
We must make an effort to get to know the children’s families & learn about the values, expectations, & factors that shape their lives at home & in their communities. This info helps us provide meaningful, relevant, & respectful learning experiences for each child & family.
