The chapters cover all key aspects of the curriculum, including: the sociololgy of childhood; child health; child development; and the realities of working with children. This thoroughly updated and revised new edition also includes completely new chapters on research with children and leadership in early year settings.
It is a core text for all those involved in the study of childhood, particularly undergraduates in the fields of child social care; social work; social policy and education and practitioners and policy makers working with children
