"Whether you are a student about to start initial teacher education, an established early years or primary teacher or one of the many others involved in young children's learning this book will help to keep your heart high in the current climate of educational change. Through well written chapters, cameos and questions to promote thinking it will help anyone who wants to make a difference in the lives of children to be able to do this imaginatively, sensitively and reflectively. This is a book to take new teachers into their training and beyond and to support others longer in the profession as their pedagogy evolves and develops."
Anna Cox, PGCE Early Years Education Route Leader, School of Education, University of Northampton, UK

"This book is an excellent starting point and source of reference for those new to the profession. It addresses the standards for QTS without being over-focussed on the National Curriculum. The authors, all experts in their field, give clear guidance and identify key texts for further reading. The cameos bring real challenges to life and provide valuable solutions. It is a book one can keep returning to and learning from and should be on every reading list."
David Little, Subject Group Leader - Childhood & Early Years, Leeds Metropolitan University, UK

"The book is stimulating, thought provoking, accessible, enlivened by rich cameos of real children and the professionals who work with them and is packed with a wide range of essential information and knowledge."
Angela Anning, Emeritus Professor of Early Childhood Education, University of Leeds, UK

The fourth edition of this highly successful text widens the scope and range of topics previously explored. The aim of the book is to support beginning teachers and other early years professionals in working and playing effectively with babies and young children as well as primary age children. The book explores a range of expanded topics to include issues such as safeguarding, attachments and relationships, assessment, indoor/outdoor environment, new technologies and empowering children.

Comprehensively revised and updated throughout, the book is written in a lively and interesting style and offers guidance, encouragement and support to all those new to working in schools and other educational settings. The book gives readers the confidence to reflect upon, challenge and enhance their own pedagogies. Key features of this new edition include:
