Developmentally Appropriate Environments (DAE) 4/1

April 1, 2021  |  6 - 9 PM

Exploration and play for children is supported by the environment. Learn to provide opportunities for children to explore and apply new skills. Learn how children gain the most benefit from playful learning experiences when materials and positive relationships are at the foundation of teaching.

Developmentally Appropriate Environments is replacing the Developmentally Appropriate Practice point on the YoungStar criteria. This will be a required point for 3 Star programs. Much like the Developmentally Appropriate Practice point, the changes now encompass materials and accessibility,
modeled after the Environment Rating Scales.

Learning Objective: Learn how to implement the key components of the NEW 3, 4, & 5 star required Developmentally Appropriate
Environments point in YoungStar.
