Abstract

[About the book]

.
Extending Professional Practice in the Early Years is aimed at early years practitioners engaged in on-going learning and working in a diverse range of settings. It will be of interest to those undertaking undergraduate and postgraduate training in early years, and those involved in continuing their professional development. It is a valuable and unique resource for those in the later stages of their professional development.


The book encourages readers to take a critical stance in relation to a wide range of themes and issues which are reflected in the four parts of the book:


- listening to children

- diversity and transitions

- pedagogy and practice

- leadership and change.


Throughout the book, authors reflect common concerns such as the rights of children, diversity and a more holistic approach to working with young children, and highlight key research in the field.
