Imagine you are walking down the hallway one day and encounter one of the kindergarten teachers, Ms. Shannon, speaking with a parent during pick-up time, as shown in this video. Many families have expressed concerns about the activities that their children partake in while they are at Little Steps Early Childhood Care Center. These parents say that their children seem to be playing a lot more than learning. Imagine the early childhood professionals interviewed in this video are your colleagues at Little Steps Early Childhood Care Center. This video shows how they have responded to the families’ concerns.
Using the information from the videos, the Little Steps Newsletter, and the transcription from a home visit, write a three-page response that describes how the center’s policies and practices either align with or need improvement in order to align with the NAEYC Principles of Effective Practice Website.
