Techniques for Teaching Young Children is a unique introductory early childhood text specialising in skills and techniques.

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.
