It takes account of the new curriculum framework and Foundation Stage for early years, recognising the demands of the National Literacy and Numeracy Strategies.The contributors’ wide range of backgrounds in early years health and education ensures that the text will meet the needs of students on HNC/D and BA degree courses in Early Childhood Studies and those taking BEd courses for Primary/Early Years teachers.
