Reflective Teaching in Early Education is the definitive textbook for reflective professionals in early education, drawing on the experience of the author team and the latest research, including the Teaching and Learning Research Programme (TLRP) findings. It offers extensive support for both undergraduate and postgraduate students and career-long professionalism for early years practitioners working in pre-schools, child care settings and the first years of primary schools. Written by a collaborative author team of leading early years educationalists and practitioners led by Jennifer Colwell, Reflective Teaching in Early Education offers two levels of support: - comprehensive, practical guidance for practitioner success with a focus on key issues such as building relationships, communication, behaviour, inclusion, curriculum planning and learning, and teaching strategies; and - evidence-informed 'principles' and 'concepts' to aid understanding of the theories informing practice, offering ways to develop deeper understanding of early years practice in early childhood education and care.Reflective activities, case studies, diagrams and figures, end-of-chapter summaries and research briefings are provided throughout.

It is very exciting to have a book in the wonderful Reflective Teaching series that is specifically dedicated to early education. Supporting the youngest learners in our society is a huge responsibility and demands thoughtful and responsive professionalism. This interesting and inspirational book is an excellent resource for all those involved with early childhood education and care, at every stage of their careers. Reflective Teaching in Early Education is a comprehensive, readable text that is highly informative and invites critical thinking, at every step, through accessible reflective activities. The structure of the book is clear, beginning with professional identity and development and moving to cover key aspects of learning, teaching and wider social issues. I will definitely use this book myself and look forward to reading and discussing it with undergraduate and postgraduate students of early childhood education. Paulette Luff, Senior Lecturer in Early Childhood Education, Anglia Ruskin University, UK Reflective Teaching in Early Education provides a hugely valuable and comprehensive tool to support evidence-based reflective practice in the early years. It will support those currently studying and no doubt become a core text for many courses, but I would also recommend it for all practitioners wishing to extend and deepen their practice. It is challenging in a highly accessible and practical way, full of reflective activities, questions and case studies alongside ideas for further reading. An excellent resource for the early years. Sandra Mathers, Senior Researcher, Department of Education, University of Oxford, UK I teach on a BA (Honours) Early Childhood Studies course and Reflective Teaching in Early Education will become one of the key texts for my students. I like the way the book begins with "me" as a reflective learner and graduates to a much deeper level of reflection by the end. Overall, this is a very impressive and important text for students concerned with early education. Lesley Hopkins, Senior Lecturer in Early Years and PGCE 3-7 Route Leader, Birmingham City University, UK I have thoroughly enjoyed engaging with this essential text for all those involved in the early years. Reflective Teaching in Early Education is comprehensive and challenging, and effectively uses case studies and reflective activities to support and extend the reader.
