Overview

This interdisciplinary core textbook looks at learning and development from birth to 19 years, and provides an accessible introduction to the common areas of study across the many roles supporting learning and development. There is coverage of common themes and issues, and theory is closely integrated with practice throughout. Chapters cover: physical development, cognitive development, social and emotional development, professionalism, leadership, quality and effectiveness, working with families, safeguarding and promoting well-being, transitions, and equality and inclusion. Reflection points, workplace activities and professional development planners are all included, and these challenge readers and students to critically engage with theory in their own practice.

'This book represents a valuable source of niformation for anyone working with children and young people. The book is well organised, comprehensive, accessible and very timely.

An excellent book which I highly recommend.'
