Review:

This new edition of the book reflects on contemporary issues in the field of early childhood studies and  engages students in concepts that relate to young children. In offering theoretical perspectives of early childhood the book also draws students into  critical reflection on practice. This should be a key text for all studying and teaching in the field of early years. (Dr Ioanna Palaiologou)

An excellent text for introducing the early years to specialists and non-specialists. It offers the student a rounded view of early years in the context of political agendas, while still maintaining the child at the centre of provision and understanding. (Stephanie Hayes)

Fully up to date with an accessible layout and style and a balance between current research, theory and practice, this new edition will prove to be a valuable resource for all students and practitioners interested in early childhood. (Jan Marks)

With its interlinked themes and different theoretical perspectives, this book will be of interest to both students and practitioners, prompting new thoughts on how practice can be improved and developed.             (Nursery World)
