Critically analyse the roles communities play in sculpting early childhood development.

Children, Families and Communities is an essential resource that will help you to understand child development in the context of the vital roles that families and the community play in educating children.?It acknowledges and discusses the profound inequities that exist in child health, education and wellbeing in Australia, while presenting an optimistic focus on the role of families and communities, including governments, in allowing children to explore and thrive.

The sixth edition continues to focus on Australian issues and research while also drawing on international bodies of work. Alongside the nine new chapters, all chapters have been significantly revised to reflect current research evidence and theory development. In-text case studies with specific research information help you to understand the link between practice and theory, and a diverse collective of authors brings exceptional academic, policy and practical experience to the text.
