Overview

Early Childhood Curriculum addresses current approaches to curriculum for infants, toddlers and young children, aged birth to eight. It provides a comprehensive introduction to the curriculum issues that student teachers and emerging practitioners will face and equips them with the decision-making tools that will ultimately enhance and promote young children's learning. The text proposes a cultural-historical framework to explore diverse approaches to early years education, drawing on research and examples of practice across a range of international contexts. It offers a clear focus on domain areas of the curriculum-the arts, health and wellbeing, literacy and language, science and maths, and information and communication technology - so that teachers are able to gain a breadth of understanding and effectively plan, design and implement curriculum strategy.

An essential text for undergraduate students throughout their pre-service teacher education, Early Childhood Curriculum is also a practical resource for early childhood teachers and carers, and a valuable tool for professional development programs. Important features include:

Curriculum pathway models to help students identify the core curriculum focus in each chapter

reflective questions, hypothetical transcripts, and real-world examples to illustrate key points

an accompanying website to support delivery of content and enhance student learning at cambridge.edu.au/academic/earlychildhood.
