3rd Edition

Teaching and Learning in the Early Years Praise for the previous edition: ‘Very readable, well presented and well balanced ... It is packed with good ideas for quality early years practices.’ - Early Years ‘Excellent book in an area where very little exists. A wealth of information in the chapters covering all areas of the curriculum. A must for anyone working in Early Years Education.’ - Ms M. Bowen, North East Wales Institute, UK The third edition of this invaluable companion for Early Years practitioners provides a broad-ranging and up-to-date review of current thinking and best practice within Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 education. Edited by David Whitebread, Senior Lecturer in Psychology and Early Years Education at the Faculty of Education, University of Cambridge Penny Coltman, Lecturer in Early Mathematics and Science at the University of Cambridge Faculty of Education, UK March 2008: 246x174: 456pp Pb: 978-0-415-42479-0: £17.99

Based on the basic truth that an effective early years curriculum must start with the children, this book focuses on their needs and their potential. The best teaching must have a strong element of fun, wonder and excitement: David Whitebread and Penny Coltman show how play is a crucial part of this. Each chapter combines a review of important principles with practical and inspiring classroom examples. This thrid edition has been fully revised and updated in light of the introduction of the Early Years Foundation Stage, and includes completely new chapters concerned with classroom organisation to support independent learning, outdoor learning, speaking and listening and mathematics in the early years. The book is essential reading for all Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 trainee teachers, their tutors and mentors, and serving teachers working with children in the 3-7 age range wishing to reflect upon and develop their practice.

The Really Useful Book of ICT in the Early Years Series: The Really Useful Series Practitioners and students wishing to expand their understanding of how very young children develop an early awareness of ICT will find this text invaluable. ICT has arguably one of the biggest impacts on every-day 21st century life, so its inclusion in the Birth to Three Matters and Foundation Stage curriculum reflects the need to encourage forward-looking practice in classrooms and nurseries. This book will help young children develop their knowledge, understanding and skill in the use of ICT, with chapters from contributors with a wide range of practical experience. Full of ideas and new thinking, this book will show how: • to promote independence in children’s use of ICT through resources like digital cameras and role-play toys • to explore the nature of creativity through ICT, using it to support the more traditional areas of art, music, dance and writing • to use ICT to enhance the physical and sensory aspects of outdoor learning experiences • to harness the potential of ICT in reaching children with a variety of different learning needs, particularly those with profound and multiple learning difficulties, or autistic spectrum disorders • to value children’s home experiences of ICT and build on what they already know, and how to involve parents more in developing their child’s ICT capability. ICT is not a separate subject, but can underpin all areas of learning for young children, so this book will help practitioners to delight, motivate and encourage their pupils to learn using ICT across all of the Foundation stage curriculum in a variety of very different and often inventive contexts. This highly practical, inspirational and informative text is therefore relevant to all practitioners and students training in Early Years education. Selected Contents: 1. Forward 2. Policy 3.

The Routledge Reader in Early Childhood Education Early childhood education has always provoked passionate feelings amongst stakeholders at all levels, from practitioners working with children and families in pre-school and school settings, to advisers, managers, politicians, and academics. The purpose of this reader is to examine change, transformation and continuity, and to present indicative scholarship in relation to five key themes. Within each theme, the readings have been chosen to exemplify national and international perspectives and trends. This is not to present a homogenised view of early childhood provision and services across cultural contexts; rather the intention is to take a critical perspective on past, present and future directions, and to identify some of the challenges, dilemmas and contradictions posed in research and scholarship.

Beyond Quality in Early Childhood Education and Care Languages of Evaluation ‘[This is a] wonderfully rich text. We feel the book to be an expression of our identity too. This is a good book. Good because it is the product of dialogue and because it offers itself not only for consent, but also for dissent and negotiation by its non-dogmatic tone. Readers will feel welcomed, listened to and respected in their opinions, even when those opinions are in opposition to the authors.’ - Carlina Rinaldi, executive Consultant for Reggio Children (taken from her preface to the 2nd edition) Gunilla Dahlberg, Institute of Education, Stockholm, Sweden, Peter Moss, Thomas Coram Research Unit, Institute of Education, UK and Alan Pence, University of Victoria, Canada 2006: 234x156: 216pp Hb: 978-0-415-41848-5: £85.00 Pb: 978-0-415-41849-2: £22.50

Taking a broad approach, this second edition of Beyond Quality in Early Childhood Education and Care relates issues of early childhood to the sociology of childhood, philosophy, ethics, political science and other fields and to an analysis of the world we live in today. It places these issues in a global context and draws on work from Canada, Sweden and Italy, including the world famous nurseries in Reggio Emilia. Working with postmodern ideas, this book questions the search to define and measure quality in the early childhood field and its tendency to reduce philosophical issues of value to purely technical and managerial issues of expert knowledge and measurement.
