Focused on seeing children in the context of the world they live in, the book provides students with a range of perspectives and insights to help them understand the complexities of early childhood, develop their own critical ideas and apply theory to practice. The book provides sociological, economic and philosophical insights in the development of children and places them in the context of the family. Early Childhood is considered in the light of developmental and ecological theories including Bronfenbrenner.
