Natural Resources: Free resources for learning about and supporting learning intersections

July 2022
The NAEYC position statement on developmentally appropriate practice or DAP ( position-statements/dap/contents) highlights core considerations that should inform the decisions of early child-hood educators. Rather than viewing development as a single measurement or domain, DAP reminds us to consider the intersections among commonality in children’s development and learning, individuality reflecting each child’s unique characteristics and experiences, and the context in which development and learning occur (page 6). This issue shares examples of intersections across these and other dimensions.
