Global Perspectives of Early Childhood Education

Global Perspectives of Early Childhood Education
Valuing Local Cultures

Edited by:

November 2022 | 224 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd

This textbook takes an innovative approach to international perspectives. Rather than focussing on themes with a limited number of comparative case studies throughout as the key competitors do, this proposal is split into two halves which I believe will provide students with a more in-depth knowledge of education in other countries. While the first half of the book covers a range of chapters which are case studies on different countries contributed by experts who live and/ or research there, the second half offers a coverage of key themes in ECE which are often covered on international modules and across degrees.
