"Developmentally appropriate practice implies that teachers understand child development and individual uniqueness. This tape explores how teachers process all this information to come up with the best possible resolution for each situation. There are times when several techniques are tried before the best solution is found. Whatever techniques the teachers choose, they strive to be gentle, good humored, and firm. They keep in sight the youth and inexperience of the children. These teachers believe that children have the capacity to learn to control themselves if they are in an environment which provides order, security, respect, and affection." -Child Development Media, Inc.
