Early childhood education and care services play an essential part in society for children, parents and the wider community. But in England there are such deep seated problems that transformation is needed.
That is the argument of a new book from the UCL Institute of Education, ‘Transforming Early Childhood in England: Towards a Democratic Education’. The book, combining critique and hope, draws on years of research and many examples from home and abroad, covering many key issues from the integration of education and childcare to the early years workforce, the curriculum to slow pedagogy, and child poverty to parental leave.
