Title: The cultural relevance of developmentally appropriate practice : possibilities and contradictions from around the world
Author: Gibson, Samantha Ann
Abstract: In 2009 the National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) released their most recent position statement on developmentally appropriate practice (DAP) for preschool aged children. This foundational document provides a framework widely used within the United States for what is considered developmentally appropriate and inappropriate when applied to educating young children. By utilizing a comparative early childhood educational lens this paper examines preschool education practices around the world in order to support, inform, broaden, or challenge these supposed developmentally appropriate guidelines.
