Developmentally Appropriate Practice

Best practice in early care and education is based on how children develop and learn in the early years. DAP is about what you do with that knowledge and how you do it. It is about joyful play and intentional teaching. It is about predictable structure and flexibility. It is about children being part of a community of caring and each child being recognized as an individual. DAP is complex and requires thinking by early childhood professionals.

Join us as we learn more about DAP and what it means to be an excellent teacher.
