Social & Emotional Development: Connecting Science and Practice in Early Childhood Settings

Children in child care centers often spend large chunks of time on activities without an obvious academic component, such as learning to dance to different tempos. Research shows, however, that these activities promote children’s social and emotional development. This book explains the research behind many common, wise early childhood practices, as well as the shortcomings of others.
