Understanding schemas and young children is the first book to focus specifically on schemas and children under three. It shows early years professionals how they can use schema theory to understand young children’s learning and behaviour.
This accessible and student-friendly book includes:
- activities and discussion points
- links to policy and practice
- descriptive observational material
- a look at the ethics of conducting this kind of research
- numerous photographs and illustrations
- suggestions for follow-up reading.
The book is aimed at a range of courses for early childhood professionals as well as practitioners working in early childhood education and care settings. It will be valuable to those on entry level initial training courses, teacher education, students on early years courses, and also to those studying for higher degrees.
‘Good case studies linking theory into practice provocations for educators encourage reflective practice.’
