Product Overview

?This should be essential reading for anyone involved in the training and professional development of early years practitioners. The book features clear definitions, summary charts, case studies, reading lists and exercises. I particularly liked the stimulating ?ideas galleries? with their statements from researchers, policy-makers and practitioners around the world.?
