This book grew out of a three-year study of one child, documenting her social, emotional and cognitive development.
It provides a valuable insight for all students and teachers of child development at the individual level. The observations and assessments are presented here as a model for students to use in their own observations aimed at supporting and extending children's learning. The book sets out theories and traditions in early childhood development and care, as well as ways of analyzing observations.
This is an essential book for students and practitioners involved in research and observation in early years settings.
`This book is a welcome contribution to the literature available for early years practitioners. The clear focus on one child is an excellent antidote to the current risks of focusing so much on the general framework and learning goals for all, that we lose sight of how individual children negotiate the early years' - Nursery World
This book helps to show how child studies work, and would support learners in carrying out their own.
this book will be really useful for working with the learners, helping them to understand child development
An excellent book for use with the 1st year students in thier module on observation and child development.
Practitioners will find this book interesting as it shows how observations and evaluations can be used to extend children's learning and involve the child's parents in the process. It is presented in a way that practitioners will engage with as it displays photos and snapshots of emergent literacy and drawings. Text is clearly presented under useful headings.
This book is useful complement in description of child development. Detailed and vivid examples of how Gergia achieves her developmental milstones give a good account of child development.
