Last year, Head Start’s Early Childhood Learning & Knowledge Center (ECLKC) updated their “Effective Practice Guidelines” on social and emotional development. This Web resource is divided into four subdomains:
- Relationships with Adults,
- Relationships with Other Children,
- Emotional Functioning, and
- Sense of Identity and Belonging.
Each subdomain is further divided into four sections: Know, See, Do, and Improve.
In these sections you will find teaching practices for infants and toddlers; videos featuring young children; suggested practices for teachers and home visitors; and planning goals, actions steps, focused observations, reflections, and feedback to support the work of professionals who work with very young children… including Early Start service providers.
