    This work, designed to be used as a basic textbook for student teachers taking B.Ed and PGCE initial training courses: provides an accessible but rigorous treatment of early childhood education, integrating ideas and practice; acts as a springboard for students' further study; arose out of the concerns and needs expressed by students themselves; and has been written from a well-known centre for early childhood studies. Practitioner examples are included throughout, together with selected readings.

    Children's learning; personality, professionalism and politics - what does it mean to be an early years teacher?; roles and relationships; working in a team; home and school - a potentially powerful partnership; what we see depends on what we look for - observation in the early years; meaningful interaction - working for equality and equity; special educational needs; an entitlement curriculum for early childhood; the physical environment.
