This valuable resource for early childhood education students and practitioners provides a broad view of the concepts and issues in early childhood curriculum. Chapters reflect ongoing discussions about what is meant by the terms planning and programming in the context of early childhood, what is authentic curriculum for young children, and effective teaching strategies to extend young childrens learning.

Numerous real-life examples, reflections, articles and case studies aid students in understanding a variety of educational theories, philosophies and frameworks.
