Developmentally Appropriate Practice

An essential resource for the early childhood field that describes strategies for applying research about development, learning, and teaching effectiveness.

Developmentally appropriate practice (DAP) is a framework that describes effective teaching practices designed to promote young children’s optimal learning and development. To make decisions that reflect best practices, educators take into consideration what they know about › Child development and learning › Each child as an individual › Each child’s social and cultural context This essential resource articulates the principles that guide our decision making and intentional teaching. Grounded in both research on how young children develop and learn and knowledge about effective teaching, DAP is at the heart of NAEYC’s work and resources.

Seeing children joyfully, physically, and intellectually engaged in meaningful learning about their world and everyone and everything in it is the truest measure of our success as early childhood educators. —Carol Copple and Sue Bredekamp

Try this: › Say what you mean and mean what you say. Be clear and consistent. › Develop logical consequences, promise them, and use them. (“If you don’t clean up the blocks, you can’t use them anymore today.”) › Reinforce desired behaviors. (“Now no one will step on the blocks and get hurt.”) Excerpt from “Responses to Challenging Behavior: Why Some Common Strategies Don’t Work and What to Do Instead,” Teaching Young Children, March 2018

Showing Warmth & Affection Consistently Here are examples of how teachers’ warmth and affection can nourish their students’ social and emotional well-being: › Ms. Johnson displays a pleasant facial expression throughout the day. She smiles when greeting children in the morning, says goodbye in the afternoon, and acknowledges children’s appropriate behaviors. › Mr. Logan uses the appropriate tone of voice at all times. His speech is at normal pitch and volume; his tone is relaxed and soft. Even when he has to redirect a child’s behavior, he remains calm and warm to convey that his concern is with the behavior—not the child. › Ms. Aragon gives appropriate touches when necessary, such as a pat on the back, a handshake, hugs, and brief tickles.

—Mary M.

One of the biggest challenges I faced during my years teaching in an inclusive prekindergarten classroom was differentiating instruction. I was constantly searching for methods to engage all children because their wide range of abilities and needs required me to offer varied outlets for learning. My school held to a theme-based curriculum with a strong backbone of structure that guided classroom activities and children’s learning. I held to this approach as well, until, as I gained experience as an educator and learned more about child development, I began to question what I was doing and to seek alternative methods.

This remarkable collection of stories from early childhood settings illustrates what is possible when using an emergent curriculum approach. The stories tackle unusual topics, such as assessing the need for program rules, addressing the impact of a hurricane on classroom design, observing the empathy of toddlers, exploring children’s ideas about sculpture, and appreciating a long-term, multiage project in an after-school program. Overall, what readers witness is a rise in the quality of practice that results when responding to emerging topics.

Class meetings have many different names—group time, gathering time, community circle, morning meeting—and take just as many forms. The focus in this book is on using this part of the classroom day for resolving conflicts, co-constructing problemsolving strategies, and making the classroom a safe, positive environment so that children can channel their energy into constructive interactions and learning. The experiences children have in class meetings can help them use problem-solving strategies outside the meetings, enabling them to depend less on adult intervention and use positive language with each other—important stepping stones on the path to healthy self-esteem and respect for others.
