The text focuses on this viewpoint in discussions of early literacy, spiritual development, discipline, diversity and anti-bias strategies and family relationships. Beginnings & Beyond also stresses the importance of maintaining an awareness of each childs needs and interests by featuring such concepts as multiple intelligence, ecological theory and NAEYCs Code of Ethical Conduct. The use of a variety of sidebars, chapter activities, integrated technology and other extras enhance the students interest in and retention of the material.
