The Early Years and Education team at University Centre South Devon have come together to produce a valuable resource for the sector titled Challenges in Early Years and Primary Education. The team comprises Anna Neale, Jo Button, Estelle Tarry, Katrina Perkins, Cathie Burgess, Alison Milner, Lisa Rogers, Caroline Knight, Isabel Hallam, Kelly Laywood and Jodie Rossiter. There was also contribution from Andy Smith from the University of Northampton.
Challenges in Early Years and Primary Education focuses on the teaching and learning of children in early years and primary school settings and creates awareness and a deeper understanding of current and critical education issues such as wellbeing, global education, online teaching, and teaching and learning in a multicultural society.
This book encourages the development of the underpinning knowledge and understanding of teaching and learning, recognising good mental health and the solid principles of working with children, families and other professionals. Through discussions on a range of interrelated factors that contribute to children’s development, and learning and progressive participation, expert contributors explore ways to respond to and ameliorate the effects of the pandemic and other possible challenges that education professionals and children might face in the future.
Challenges in Early Years and Primary Education is ideal reading for educational practitioners including teachers and anyone working in aligned educational settings, as well as students in the field of early years and primary education.
