Planning for Early Learning
Educating Young Children

Second Edition

Other Titles in:
Early Childhood Education

August 1997 | 176 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
Since the First Edition was published, there have been considerable social and political changes: increased demand for day care for babies and children under three; and increased early admission to infant school; desirable outcomes for fourr-olds supporting The National Curriculum for fiveto seven year-olds; and baseline assessment at five years.

Victoria Hurst sets out how practitioners can structure and organize their thinking about early education and the curriculum, so that they can support and extend children's learning and development. She also shows how practitioners can judge the effectiveness of their educational provision and learn more about the education of young children.

I have recommended this book as an essential resource that helps students understand the importance of planning in the early years.
The book explains the planning process clearly and is an essential resource that helps students succeed with their externally set task.
