Giving early years practitioners and students the confidence to effectively support scientific exploration and investigation with young children, this book explains the science behind young children's knowledge and understanding of the world. Linking theory to practice and the Early Years Foundation Stage, the emphasis throughout the book is on recognizing young children as competent, creative thinkers, and building on their ideas. The book is packed with critical questions and opportunities for reflection, to encourage the reader to think carefully about the role of the adult in supporting child-initiated learning and discovery. The authors look at all the key areas of scientific knowledge, and provide practical ideas suitable for babies, children aged 2 years, and children aged 3 to 5 years. There is also advice on using observations to help with assessment, and for planning the next steps in children's learning.

Review:

'I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone wanting to get the most out of the opportunities for learning about science that seem to be all around us in our settings' - Early Years Update

'[This book] provides a thorough background, putting together relevant knowledge and understanding, key information and practical support, coupled with innovative ideas' - Early Years Educator

'This book is aimed at teachers, trainee teachers and other early years practitioners, providing a thorough background of the science taught for children aged from birth to five. It puts together relevant knowledge and understanding, key information and practical support along with innovative ideas on current thinking in the early years setting. In two easily accessible parts, the book firstly provides guidance on creating a science-rich environment whilst considering the child as a creative thinker; secondly it gives support for practitioners in the scientific concepts needed to deliver science to young children successfully. A very readable and essential book for anyone working in the early years' - Louise Nelson, Senior Lecturer, Initial Teacher Education, Primary Science, Leeds Metropolitan University
