Child Development and Education is a comprehensive child development text written especially for educators. It helps students to translate developmental theories into practical implications for teaching and caring for youngsters with diverse backgrounds, characteristics and needs.
The text draws from innumerable theoretical concepts, research studies conducted around the world and the authors’ own experiences as parents, teachers, psychologists and researchers to identify strategies for promoting young people’s physical, cognitive and social–emotional growth.
In this Australian edition, contemporary Australian and New Zealand research has been highlighted, and local educational structures, philosophies and controversies have been reflected.
