Researching young children

Oates, John (2002). Researching young children. In: Miller, Linda; Drury, Rose and Campbell, R. eds. Exploring issues in early years education and care. London, UK: David Fulton.



This textbook has been developed and written in response to the huge changes in the early years sector. The enhanced status of the sector is welcome but brings with it the need for textbooks that take students beyond the basics. In this book, students are encouraged to explore and research issues in more depth, and to take a critical and reflective approach to their practice.
