Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
'This new revised edition includes a new chapter on placements and more thoroughly considers the role and place of multi-agency working...Chapter 4 is particularly useful and provides an excellent discussion on making informed judgements in professional practice...Overall the book is comprehensive in its coverage of core skills and very accessible for students. It captures the challenges faced by Early Childhood students well and emphasises the importance of making and justifying professional decisions. There is also a comprehensive list of further reading and resources which will undoubtedly be useful for both new and final year students' -
ESCalate

'[This book] is a great guide to read prior to beginning a course and will help prepare students not only for studying childhood at degree level, but also for writing assignments and carrying out research projects too. It even offers advice on career opportunities and 'next steps' after completing a course' -
Nursery Education PLUS

'I think this is an excellent book for childhood and early childhood students, and I can't recommend it highly enough. The authors have captured precisely the challenging issues for students, and this book really helps to develop students' understanding of the importance of knowledge and judgement in their future work with children' - Elise Alexander, Principal Lecturer in Early Childhood Studies, Roehampton University
