Childhood Practice Book Proposal Accepted

This book introduces readers to a wide range of contemporary issues relevant to Early Learning and Childcare (ELC) practitioners. Each chapter has been skilfully constructed with the ELC practitioner in mind. The ELC text seeks to support high-quality provision in order to improve developmental outcomes for children as evidence suggest that high quality ELC interventions provide lasting and significant long-term effects on young children’s development. The overall aim of the Early Learning and Childcare (ELC) text is to encourage ELC practitioners to develop the skills and knowledge to become reflective, evidence-based practitioners who can adopt a flexible approach to their professional learning in order to meet the needs of children and their colleagues.
