9781446255292: Foundations of Early Childhood: Principles and Practice

′This text will be an invaluable addition to the reading of students and tutors alike. It has been written thoughtfully for students embarking on university courses that study aspects of early childhood education. The introductory chapters give the reader a sense of the thinking and reflection that is helpful for them at the beginning of their studies and a clear focus on the rights of our youngest children roots the text in a sound pedagogical frame. The later chapters broaden the argument and feel very relevant to the current context in their explorations of the policy and practice of EYFS. I would strongly recommend this text.′
-Jo Albin-Clark, Senior Lecturer in Early Years Education, Edge Hill University

About the Author:

Penny Mukherji has been involved in educating students in the field of early childhood for over 20 years and during this time has developed a deep understanding of how to support students on their learning journeys. Penny has recently retired from her post a Senior Lecturer in Early Childhood Studies at London Metropolitan University, where an important part of her teaching involved supporting both undergraduate and postgraduate students as they complete their research projects. Penny continues to be actively involved in the university with supporting students whilst they are completing their dissertations. With a background in health and psychology, Penny is an established author, with a special interest in the health and well-being of young children.



Louise Dryden is Senior Lecturer in Early Years & Primary Education. Having taught children aged 3-11 for many years in inner-city schools (in London and Birmingham), the major focus of her more recent work has been in lecturing to students on degree programmes related to early years and primary education. Louise spent a number of years lecturing in Further Education where the focus of her teaching was on child development and educational provision for children in pre-school settings through to Key Stage 1. This experience proved extremely valuable in her role as an academic liaison tutor for an early years’ Foundation Degree, working in partnership with staff and students in several Further Education colleges. Teaching in university settings for the past 12 years, her particular areas of specialism relate to linguistic and literary development in children, and study skills for adults.

Review:

‘This book is essential reading for all involved in the study of early childhood, addressing key themes, ideas and topical debates relevant for early childhood students at undergraduate level.  The Editors have provided a lucid, readable and clear contribution to our knowledge and understanding of early childhood.’ (Rose Envy 2013-11-12)

‘This book is a welcome addition to the growing scholarly publications about children in the Early Years.  The case studies bring the subject matter to life.  The points for reflection will help to develop the vital skill of reflective practice. I particularly enjoyed reading "upholding children′s rights in early years settings.  It was refreshing to see that the rights of babies are highlighted in the chapter.’ (Jackie Musgrave 2013-11-12)

This is an invaluable addition to anyone’s early years library, with particular relevance for students (specifically those studying at levels four and five of their early childhood degrees) and tutors. The book covers key topics, such as children’s rights; the early years curriculum; how children learn and develop; health and wellbeing. It is a book that would thoroughly support any student making the transition to honours level study. There are some terrific little reflection activities aiming to implement good theory into practice in a helpful and purposeful way. A particularly interesting and influential chapter is the one around neuroscientific findings and how these are shaping and influencing early childhood policy. (Martine Horvath)
