Early Childhood Australia’s Best of Sustainability: Research, practice and theory (e-version)


by Elliott, Edwards, Davis and Cutter-MacKenzie

Best of Sustainability: Research, Practice and Theory collates a range of key articles focusing on sustainability from past editions of the Australasian Journal of Early Childhood and Every Child Magazine.


Sustainable service operation and promoting children’s responsibility and care for the environment are now part of the National Quality Standards and more importantly, all early childhood services must engage with sustainability in this time of increasing global environmental concerns.

The publication documents the best of research, theory and practice to date and questions where has early childhood education for sustainability come from and more importantly, where is it going? There are multiple possibilities for educators, researchers, policymakers and managers to take action in early childhood settings for an environmentally sustainable future.
