Good practice in the early years

Research output: Contribution to JournalBook Reviewpeer-review


This is the third edition of the Sheffield Hallam team book and it addresses a range of key issues in the field of early years, with particular focus on the English context. The title is bold, yet Janet Kay’s opening chapter serves to dissipate any concerns regarding this as she interrogates head on the challenges of defining and engaging in‘good practice in the early years’ and includes a distinct aim for the book:‘to offer students and existing practitioners a discussion of various aspects of practice’(3). Alongside a wholly appropriate focus on principles and values, the editor’s introductory chapter provides a strong foundation for this eclectic text. Nine chapters follow, each focused on a different aspect of the field of early years.
