The Culture of Child Care

Attachment, Peers, and Quality in Diverse Communities

Edited by Kay E. Sanders and Alison Wishard Guerra

Child Development in Cultural Context

  • Presents an innovative theory that integrates cultural practices of children, families, and teachers with definitions of child care quality and children's experiences in child care
  • Discusses a new approach to thinking about quality in early education, especially for ethnic minority and low-income communities
  • Crosses disciplinary boundaries by linking psychological and educational theories to the question of improving children's development and experiences within child care for children who are dual-language learners, African American, Asian, or Latino
  • Evaluates whether the definitions of quality held by the traditional early childhood canon including models of adult-child and peer relationships in the child care context are accurate and relevant given the increasingly ethnically diverse population in the United States
