Teacher guided play | Education homework help

TITLE: NAEYC’s position on Teacher-Guided play

Developmentally appropriate practice (DAP) is the term used by the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) to describe programs grounded in child development theory and research that are designed to meet the developmental needs of children (Copple & Bredekamp, 2009). The NAEYC’s most recent publication and the organization’s position statement, Developmentally Appropriate Practice in Early Childhood Programs: Serving Children From Birth Through Age 8, places greater emphasis on the centrality of play in development and learning. Copple and Bredekamp explain that this most recent position statement reflects current knowledge from research and a recognition of the importance of the broader social context, including the context of children’s lives. The 2009 statement reflects one of the core values of early childhood educators: recognition that childhood is both a time for learning and for “laughter, love, play, and great fun” (p. x).
