Samenvatting

A strong comprehension of early childhood theory is fundamental to early childhood educators' abilities to make informed decisions about the ways they support children's development and learning. In this book, Carol Garhart Mooney writes about the important task early childhood educators have to understand the foundational theories behind their daily practices. When this is accomplished, they are better able to refine their practices, create thoughtful curriculum, and do their best work with children.

To this end, Garhart Mooney advocates that everyone working in early childhood—caregivers, educators, consultants, administrators—should hold degrees in early childhood. With a focus on the value that comes when early childhood educators have strong theoretical knowledge and are able to articulate why they do something for children, Theories of Practice is a call to everyone in the field to raise the standards of early childhood education. Garhart Mooney emphasizes that early childhood educators can work more confidently and effectively with children when they understand the link between best practices and the research behind them.

Carol Garhart Mooney has been an early childhood professional for more than forty years and is currently the executive director at Holy Cross Early Childhood Center in Manchester, New Hampshire. She holds a bachelor's degree in elementary education and a master's degree in early childhood education. She has completed coursework for a doctorate in sociology of the family.

Recensie(s)

Garhart Mooney's clear, cogent voice calls on us to forward the profession by defining the thoeretical knowledge required to be in the field of early childhood education. This book will inspire everyone from new teachers in training to elders in the field to have deep and thoughful discussion about what it means to practice as an early childhood educator. It is a must read for those of use who want to take ownership of defining our work and to fight for the respect and wages we deserve.--Beth Menninga, Center for Early Education and Development, University of Minnesota
