Techniques for Teaching Young Children is a unique introductory early childhood text specialising in skills and techniques. The text offers an excellent blend of theory and practice by describing and demonstrating teaching techniques used in early childhood education, ranging from the simple to the complex. Examples of these include observing and listening through to scaffolding and empowerment. This book provides early childhood student teachers and practising teachers with an excellent guide to everyday practice and reflective teaching.


  • A highly effective pedagogical framework in each chapter of 'What?', 'How?' and 'When and Why?' sections ensures students know about each technique described and the most appropriate time to implement them.
  • The developmental considerations associated with each technique is highlighted in every chapter.
  • Equity considerations are covered in each chapter and include discussions of race and culture, disability and additional needs, and gender.
  • Reflective practice is highlighted at the end of each chapter, providing questions and activities for critical thinking.
  • 'Improving Teaching in Practice' sections at the end of each chapter prompts thinking on applying practical strategies.
