The Early Years Handbook for Students and Practitioners is a comprehensive and accessible course text for all students studying at levels 4 and 5, including on Foundation Degrees and Early Childhood Studies degrees. Designed and written by the Chair of the SEFDEY (Sector-Endorsed Foundation Degree in Early Years) Network and a team of expert contributors, this book covers the essential skills, knowledge and understanding you need to become an inspiring and effective early years practitioner.

Divided into four parts: The Student-Practitioner-Professional; The Learning and Development of Children 0-5; The Child, Family and Society; and The Senior Practitioner-Professional, the book covers all aspects of working with young children and engages you with theory that is explicitly linked to your practice. Throughout there is a strong emphasis on supporting your transition to undergraduate study, developing your academic skills and encouraging you to be an active learner.

In every chapter, the book seeks to help you develop your professional identity and features:

    • Activities to help you to reflect on your own practice
    • ‘Provocations’ to promote discussion and debate
    • Case study examples and photographs to illustrate key points
    • ‘From Research to Practice’ boxes outlining key research in the field and implications for practice.

The book is supported by a companion website featuring, for students, links to useful websites and video material, and an interactive flashcard glossary. Online support for lecturers includes ideas for tasks and activities to use in class and the diagrams and images in the book available to download.

Review:

"The Early Years Handbook for Students and Practitioners should be on an essential book list for everyone who is involved or interested in early years education. It covers an extremely comprehensive range of subjects which are written by authors from different but relevant backgrounds and experiences. This is a strength of this book as each author brings a fresh approach and style, always eminently readable and with a common thread of providing reflection and provocation points which involve the reader in their ideas."

Heather Lowe, Homerton Children’s Centre, Cambridge, UK

"A comprehensive guide for those working in the early years which covers the key areas of theory and practice. The range of authors compliment the breadth and depth of the publication. A good all round text for practitioners and those supporting practitioner development."

Mary Briggs, Oxford Brookes University, UK

"This book covers a wide range of relevant issues both for new and more experienced early childhood studies students in an accessible format. It provides excellent material for stimulating professional discussion and reflection."

Lesley Dove, University of Bolton, UK

"This is an essential guide for those students filled with the fundamental skills, knowledge and understanding they need to become inspiring effective early years practitioners."

Martine Horvath, EYE
