Wonderful guide to help embed the Graduate Competencies, through the ECSDN, for both student and teacher. The structure of the book clearly defines the nine competencies, complimented by reflective questions and case studies. Visiting the historical and contemporary circumstances of early childhood studies helps define the complexities of the field for the reader and serves to create the context that the competencies sit within.
