This accessible text encourages readers to understand and confidently engage with distinctive early years pedagogy. It shows how pedagogy not only underpins the Early Years curriculum but is also inherent in the role of the adult and the experiences that are offered to young children.
The book explains what the differing early years pedagogies are, why they are encouraged, and the knowledge, skills and practice that are required to work with them. Emphasising that what works in one situation may not in another and a wider pedagogical knowledge is essential to ensure quality outcomes for children, it considers key topics such as:
The role of the pedagogue and developing your own style
Promoting a lifelong love of learning in children under your care
Sensitivity and inclusion for all children's cultures and communities
The promoting the rights of every child under your care
Incorporating reflection points and research tasks to support independent learning, this is essential reading for students on Early Childhood Studies courses and Early Years Foundation Degrees as well as early years practitioners.
