Designed to accompany "The Creative Curriculum for Infants and Toddlers," this journal provides guidelines for practitioners using the curriculum. Information recorded for journal completion may be used as the basis for discussion at staff meetings or family child care association meetings, as well as in parent conferences. The journal is organized according to the chapters in the curriculum, with each section including questions to guide teachers in trying out new ideas and reflecting upon their work. Section 1, "Getting Started," provides self-assessment questions related to professional development and program quality. Section 2, "Who's Who in a Quality Program," focuses on building relationships with children and their families, child development in the first 3 years, parenthood, special family concerns related to child care, cultural influences, involving men in child care, and building a community support network. Section 3, "Putting Quality into Action: The Big Picture," highlights program quality, planning and evaluating, individualizing the program, creating a welcoming environment, ensuring children's safety, promoting children's health, and guiding children's behavior. Section 4, "Putting Quality into Action: Routines Day by Day," examines the daily routines, including greetings, diapering and toileting, and eating and mealtimes. Section 5, "Putting Quality into Action: Activities Day by Day," considers how to set the stage and promote play and learning in toy play, art imitation and pretend, stories and books, tasting and preparing food, sand and water play, music and movement activities, and outdoor play. The journal's concluding section allows reflection on professional development. (KB)
