Product Description

Extending: Child Development From Five to Twelve Years is written for those who spend time with and care for children during middle childhood, especially those who work in out of school hours care. The focus is on understanding the child’s development during these years and their in-school and out-of-school experiences.

Chapters address all the major domains of development as well as core issues in middle childhood such as gender and development, the emergence of reading and writing skills, moral and ethical development, creativity, children with special needs and health and safety concerns in environments for children.
