'How I wish I'd had a book like this when I first started my career as a researcher into early years education and care! There's something for everyone, and I wholeheartedly commend it to those embarking upon, or wishing to extend their knowledge of, early childhood research' - Professor Emeritus Janet Moyles, Early Years & Play Consultant

This highly engaging and easy-to-read introductory text is tailored to meet the needs of early childhood studies students. It includes practical examples of research with and about young children, and encourages an interactive approach from the reader. By offering clear guidance on research methods, as well as advice on how to develop skills as a researcher, the book takes students step-by-step through the process of doing research in early childhood.

The book covers:

- an introduction to research methodology

- essential knowledge and skills in research methods

- undertaking a piece of independent research from start to finish

- developing your ability to understand and critique the research of others

- ethics in research

- real life examples of how to tackle different aspects of research

The authors break down the content into four main sections: Paradigms and Principles; Approaches to research; Methods; Carrying out a research project. Each chapter contains learning objectives, case studies, research in focus sections, reflection points, a summary and suggestions for further reading. The language used throughout is accessible, and a full glossary is included.

This book is indispensible for all students undertaking research in early childhood.
