This Open Educational Resource (OER) was adapted from two textbooks and customized for NOVA Online students:

  • First, we provide a good foundation with Chapter 1: “Theories That Help us Understand Families” from Child, Family, and Community by Rebecca Laff and Wendy Ruiz. This will be required reading.
  • Next, we have provided the entire text of The Role of Equity and Diversity in Early Childhood Education by Krischa Esquivel, Emily Elam, Jennifer Paris, & Maricela Tafoya. Your professor recommends this textbook but does not assign you readings from it. Please use it as the valuable resource it is intended to be.
