'This admirable book covers key historical and contemporary theories which underlie different approaches to Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC). The authors have devised an excellent format which locates approaches to practice in a clear theoretical framework and also invites practitioners to engage in critical reflection, to develop their own distinct practices. This is a much needed strategy in a field where practitioners have often lacked the critical edge which could put them in the driving seat of their own practice.

This will be a useful addition to the reading list for my Pedagogy Module.
A useful text for considering international perspectives on critical issues related to early years education. Will adopt for a module on international curricula studies.
An excellent book that really explains the theory behind early years practice. My students have had to explore philisophical approaches and perspectives and this text book enables them to look further than just their own textbok. A great resource.
A great book for topic specific readings
Brilliant informative book
This book highlighted some of the key learning approaches that students discuss within the process of them completing there Foundation Degree. It is ideal for getting students to consider some of the more contemporary theories which are often not thought of due to it being current or recent practice. The discussion questions are really good for encouraging students to think about the theory in question.
I found the book very readable and the information very accessible for my students. The information is up to date and the "questions for discussion" very useful for starter activities to use in seminars
really informative book, gives the students details regarding the theories without it being too technical and confusing.
A useful book for students detailing relevant theories and approaches to learning. It is a text that students will be able to 'dip' in and out of when needed.
This book is essential for any learners doing their foundation degree.
It also introduces level 3 learners to curriculum's such as Te Whariki and gives them a solid background on different theories and approaches used internationally. Which is great for the optional unit of CACHE, 17.
