Having a good grasp of the theories of child development and how these translate into practice can make a positive difference to how you understand babies and children and the ways in which you can help them learn. This approachable guide offers easy access to a wide range of concepts, as well as classic and current theories, about how babies and children learn. Each chapter offers clear guidance on how to recognise the theory in action and suggests ways to test these ideas out in early years settings, supporting the development of reflective practice. Case studies are included throughout, along with questions to guide thinking and encourage readers to develop their practice. Summaries conclude each chapter offering a quick reference of the theory examined and the benefits of applying it to practice. Early Childhood Theories and Contemporary Issues is an essential guide for all those looking to develop and enhance their practice in supporting child development within the early years. Dr Mine Conkbayir is an award-winning author and trainer. She has worked in the field of early childhood education and care for over 20 years and is co-author, with Dr Christine Pascal, of Early Childhood Theories and Contemporary Issues (Bloomsbury, 2014) and Early Childhood and Neuroscience: Theory, Research and Implications for Practice, 2nd Edition (Bloomsbury, 2021).
