Developmentally Appropriate Environments: Environments and Curriculum through the Lens of DAP

January 28, 2020  |  6 - 9 PM
Little Sprouts Academy, 425 Technology Dr E, Menomonie, WI 54751

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 both/and thinking by early childhood professionals.


Learning Objectives:

  • Learn what Developmentally Appropriate Practice is
  • Reflect on your role in implementing DAP
  • Discuss what DAP looks like for all children

Children learn through play and exploration of their environment. Attend this training to learn how you can be a more intentional in your work with children. Learn how you can structure your program and activities keeping developmentally appropriate practice at the center of all that you do.
