Summary:
"This edited collection reconceptualizes the place of early childhood education within communities. Contributors present a shift in the lens of the teachers and management within early childhood services to incorporate new ways of working with, alongside, and in collaboration with family, whanau (a Maori term referring to an extended family), and the wider community. "-- Provided by publisher. "This edited international collection reconceptualizes the place of early childhood education and care services (ECEC) within communities, and challenges traditional approaches to family involvement and partnerships in ECEC. Using a range of theoretical positions, the authors present research-based discussions from five countries which challenge existing ECEC discourses of child-centeredness. In this book teachers and a range of professionals working with children together with researchers explore pedagogy in ECEC as sites for building socially just, inclusive, democratic communities which enhance families' sense of belonging, connectedness, resilience and identity"-- Provided by publisher.
