Here we have it folks! A complete POWERPOINT presentation on implementing the importance of development DAP into your classrooms. Each slide explains why creating Developmentally Appropriate Practices for children will help with learning progress.
When planning classroom curriculum for young children, it is important to factor in the wide spectrum of abilities and interests of children, as well as activities that are based on the way in which we know children learn. As more and more research becomes available on brain development, we, as early childhood professionals, respond by changing and evolving in how we work with children, and in our approaches to best assist them in reaching their full potentials – cognitively, socially, physically, and emotionally. “Developmentally Appropriate Practice” is more about doing things better – not “right” or “wrong.”
