Publisher: Hodder Education;
The broad aim of this book is to equip readers with a basic knowledge of all aspects of child care and education up to the age of 16 years. Children, like adults, cannot be rushed in their learning.They need to reflect on what they learn practically, and they do this in their play, talk and representations of all kinds (drawings, models, dances, songs etc.).
Adults reflect on and consolidate their learning by reading and writing about their new thinking and knowledge; and as they do this, they organise their ideas, share them and put them into practice.
You will find that this book is unique because whilst it introduces you to different ideas and ways of working with children and their families, it also has a logical shape.This means that it puts principles of inclusivity and equality first. It looks at children and young people in a holistic way, but never separate from the child’s parents or carers, who are placed centrally in the book.
Throughout the book, you will find both he and she used in a balanced way.This is because both boys and girls need broad roles and relationships, as children and as they become adults.
Activities and case studies can be found within the text and at the end of the chapters; there is also a comprehensive glossary at the end of the book.
This book is particularly recommended for students following the new CACHE Award/Certificate/Diploma in Child Care and Education. Chapters 1 to 14 cover the Mandatory Units of this course.
