Early Childhood Education: Society and Culture
by Anning, Angela

by Cullen, Joy

by Fleer, Marilyn

This fully revised and up-to-date edition examines sociocultural and historical approaches to current theories of learning in early childhood education. It sets out research-based evidence linking theory and practice in early childhood settings.

Written by leading figures in the field, the book extends a strong and traditional theme - the importance of the child's perspective and respect for each child's individual background.

Within the context of early years settings, the book is structured around four overall themes:

  • the dynamics of learning and teaching

  • the nature of knowledge

  • assessment

  • evaluation and quality.

This book is essential reading for undergraduate and advanced courses in early childhood studies.
