This book introduces early years practitioners to some contemporary theorists and explores their work alongside more well-known thinkers. It demonstrates how these theories relate to everyday practice in the early years and that discussion of them can support ongoing professional learning.
Just love this book. Theory forms a large part of our course and the students will gain valuable information from this . Its written in a more realistic way instead of being academically stuffy it its approach.
This book gives a detailed account of a range of theorists we use to understand practice; great for students writing assignments where reference to theory is needed.
Very straightforward text, will be a supportive source for each year of our programme, but particularly the first year. Good to see more contemporary theorists included.
This book gives a comprehensive overview of the EC theories covered on our programmes. It is an easy read for students who are able to connect with the theories discussed and relate them to their practice.
Clear essential reading for level 4, 5 and 6 students allows them to analyse information to start putting a critique to their work
