Samenvatting

''This comprehensive publication rightly establishes early childhood as a critical phase in the education of young people and makes the case for developing our insights regarding early childhood education (ECE) practices through the eyes of practitioner inquiry in the context of collaborative partnerships. It achieves its goal through a series of insightful case studies that not only illuminate the text as stories from the field, but also contribute to our understanding regarding ECE learning and pedagogy.''- Susan Groundwater-Smith, Honorary Professor, Faculty of Education and Social Work, University of Sydney.

Recensie(s)

Hence, the strength of the book lies in the open and reflexive accounts from those who wrote the chapters about a range of experiences in such different contexts. The book achieves its aims of raising the profile of practitioner research in early childhood education and makes a valuable contribution to the field -- Helen Hedges This book acknowledges what a critical phase and stage in the education of young people early years is, and makes the case for developing our insights more deeply into early childhood education practices through practitioner inquiry in the context of collaboration relationships. -- Martine Horvath This comprehensive publication rightly establishes early childhood as a critical phase in the education of young people and makes the case for developing our insights regarding early childhood education (ECE) practices through the eyes of practitioner inquiry in the context of collaborative partnerships. It achieves its goal through a series of insightful case studies that not only illuminate the text as stories from the field, but also contribute to our understanding regarding ECE learning and pedagogy. The work brings out an array of critical questions regarding the nature of evidence and the ways it might inform practice and eschews a narrow, instrumental approach. It draws on traditions that have grown and developed in a range of contexts that provide the reader with variations within different and contrasting educational jurisdictions including Australia, South Africa, Sweden and Chile. It is an important resource for practitioners in the field, as well as their academic partners in the tertiary sector. -- Susan Groundwater-Smith
