Early years education has a vital role to play in setting the foundations for the future of the young people of the nation, and the implementation and drawing on research at the "chalk-face," is more vital now than ever before.
Chapters in this book examine a variety of different large and small-scale research reports and projects carried out in numerous early years settings. The author shows how to avoid common pitfalls in misinterpreting research findings, what questions should be asked in order to help inform students' own research projects, and how findings can be applied and used in the classroom or nursery to improve practice
Without requiring any prior knowledge of research and research methodologies, this book will appeal to undergraduate and postgraduate students taking courses in early years education, and practitioners undertaking continuing professional development.
