For students of Early Childhood Studies, questions are as important as answers.  
What is childhood? Is childhood the same in all cultures?
How do children grow and develop?
What space do we make for children in our society?
How do adults approach risk and what does this mean for children?

Can children's play be planned by adults?

Early Childhood Studies tackles these questions and more. It explores the why, how and what of studying and working with young children and their families, considering how a range of theories can help us to identify useful questions.

This is a comprehensive, up-to-date, challenging and accessible core text for the Early Childhood Studies course. Throughout, key theories and research findings are highlighted and explored to help link theory and practice. It covers the important themes of child development, communication, wellbeing, observation, working with parents, inclusive practice, leadership and research. This fourth edition has been fully updated throughout and includes new chapters on children and risk, inclusive learning environments, play and adults′ concepts of childhood.
