Beacon of Hope: The Promise of Early Head Start for America’s Youngest Children
Within the context of examining the role of the Early Head Start Program, this book provides a clear description of current research and best practices for raising and caring for young children.
Included are vignettes that illustrate how to partner with children’s parents and promote parent-child relationships that support healthy development, even in challenging situations.
Ronald Lally contributed a chapter on nurturing early learning, which draws from the Program for Infant/Toddler Caregivers (PITC) training that has been provided for more than 700 Early Head Start and Migrant Head Start programs.
