Located at the heart of early childhood education are the ways that young children build knowledge and the ways that practitioners, parents and other adults help them to do so. Based on empirical research evidence, this book provides practical guidance for early childhood leaders, tutors, practitioners, parents and students to identify, understand, interpret and articulate the complex processes and outcomes that are inherent in the ways young children interact with the world to construct knowledge. The book is also about how adults might support children in that endeavour.
