“Challenging Early Learning is a fabulous book. It contains many concrete tips and ideas that can be used right away with young children. At the end of the book there are also specific activities that can be done in small groups. Indeed, we have already implemented many of the general methods in our pre-school and the children (and their parents) have responded very positively. I highly recommend this book.”
JAnna Käcko-Englund, Pre-School Leader, Vörå, Finland
What makes this book different?
Challenging Early Learning is written primarily for Early Childhood professionals working in childcare, after-school care or kindergartens. Parents with a background in education, child psychology, or social care will also appreciate the insights and guidance. The book shares some of the best ways to enhance young children’s learning (particularly for children aged 3-7-years-old).
As Arthur Schopenhauer once said, “Buying books would be a good thing if one could also buy the time to read them in; but as a rule, the purchase of books is mistaken for the appropriation of their contents.”
With that in mind, Challenging Early Learning has several features to help navigate the book, including:
- Margin notes with summaries of content and key points
- Section numbers to support navigation and cross-referencing (they also remain constant – unlike page numbers – when the book is translated into other languages)
- ‘Now Try This’ sections to guide and support professional learning
Suitable for all staff working with children aged 3-7-years-old and those with special educational needs. Also suitable for parents/carers with a background in education, child development, or psychology.
