Children’s Learning in Early Childhood
Learning Theories in Practice 0-7 Years
Focusing on the key skill of understanding and translating theory into practice, this book provides an in-depth exploration and analysis of the key theorists and theories that form the foundation of learning and development in early childhood.
The structure of the book mirrors the student learning journey, to compliment the course and seminar reading. The first parts of the book take a critical approach to learning theories, developing reflective and analytical skills through critical questions, photographs and discussion points, whilst the second part offers case studies to help students understand how theories can be applied in practice.
A helpful and clear baseline guide for students studying Early Childhood Education. A good range of theories, well explained.
a really practical book to show how theory and practice link, will be helpful for several modules
This book has been added to our reading list as it helps students understand how to apply theory to their practice. Easy to read and understand.
I did pass this on to the early years department who I think are including it in the reading list. I do mention it also in one of my lectures I recommend books beyond what is on the reading list.
