Topics include: How children construct scientific meaning Tuning into children's initial scientific understanding Common misconceptions How play supports the development of children's science ideas The provision of a rich environment for learning early years science Developing children's scientific experiences Science background knowledge to underpin activities that help children scientific concepts How adults can best support the development of children's science ideas and reasoning As such the book is intended as a guide to support a wide range of students i.e. both those intending to gain QTS (early years pathway) and those intending to work in early years including the new EYTS. It will also be relevant for established early years professionals who wish to improve the provision in their setting.
