Teaching and Learning in the Early Years

Synopsis

Early years education is currently in the spotlight as teachers and policy makers consider how best to provide high quality provision for the youngest children in our schools and nurseries. Young children do have specific needs, and the education we offer them should reflect these needs. Education must also take into account the ways in which children learn and develop - crucial factors which are often felt to be in danger of being overlooked.The chapters in this book are written by practising teachers and teacher educators, who write from their own experiences, providing detailed and revealing snapshots of how children actually think and learn. They discuss the issues that are specific to the early childhood education and consider how best to plan for, provide for and assess the early years. This text should be read by all students and teachers working with young children.
