Some teachers in preschool programs tend to look at childrens developmental levels, consider what skills are prerequisites for kindergarten, and plan activities-often without a clear philosophical base. These programs address certain needs, but do not necessarily prepare children for the variety of life experiences they will face.The content of Just As I Am is based on preventive mental health concepts. Focusing on the total child, the curriculum provides a context for fostering self-confidence and skills for healthy living. It is a framework from which teachers can view every classroom experience as an opportunity to encourage mental health.
