Description : This book approaches STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, the Arts and Mathematics) in early childhood education from multiple angles. It focuses on the teaching and learning of children from two years of age to the early years of school. Proponents of STEAM describe how it can create opportunities for children to learn creatively, and various chapter authors make strong connections between discipline areas within the context of an informal curriculum. Others advocate for an integrated STEM, rather than STEAM, approach. With a light touch on theory and a focus on how to embed STE(A)M in an integrated early childhood curriculum, the editors and contributors examine the STEAM versus STEM question from multiple angles. The chapters provide helpful frameworks for parents, teachers and higher education institutions, and make practical suggestions for how to support young childrens inquiry learning. Drawing on pedagogy and research from around the world, this book will be of interest to scholars of STEAM education, early childhood educators, students of early childhood education and parents of young children. Caroline Cohrssen is an associate professor in the Faculty of Education at The University of Hong Kong. Her research interests include learning and teaching in the years prior to school entry. This includes the home learning environment and early childhood education settings. Susanne Garvis is a professor in the Department of Education at Swinburne University of Technology, Australia. Her research interests include quality, policy and learning in early childhood education.

Description : Strong Foundations: Evidence informing practice in early childhood education and care celebrates the progress made by the Australian early childhood education and care profession since the implementation of the Early Years Learning Framework. Recognising this progress, Associate Professor Anna Kilderry and Honorary Professor Bridie Raban lead a team of 34 notable contributors from 13 universities and institutions throughout Australia, who focus on the challenges of access, equity and quality that remain across the sector. With a Foreword by Professor Alison Elliott, Strong Foundations brings together knowledge and insights from research in education, health, social care, child safety, science, mathematics and the arts. The critical importance of health, wellbeing and safety in the first five years of children’s lives is reflected in a particular focus on supporting positive lifestyle choices, on social and emotional development and on the role that adults play in keeping children safe. The book addresses policy requirements from the Early Years Learning Framework, the National Quality Standard and Quality Improvement Plans, highlighting links between research and practice, and making connections to the five EYLF Learning Outcomes. With an emphasis on professional practice expectations, Strong Foundations showcases evidence from Australian and international research and provides case studies of early childhood educators applying evidence-informed actions in a wide variety of education and care settings. Strong Foundations translates high-quality, peer-reviewed research into everyday practice and supports early childhood educators in improving long-term outcomes for children, families and communities.

Description : There is mounting interest in services to strengthen families and, if possible, to keep them together, preventing unnecessary and costly out-of-home placements. Unfortunately, although these programs are proliferating throughout the country, many are developing without the benefit of existing historical, conceptual, and scholarly data, information needed to make sound fiscal policy and programmatic decisions. This book fills this critical void, with a systematic examination of home-based services for abused, neglected, delinquent, and emotionally disturbed children and their families. With the most authoritative research on the topic to date, this book will be of interest to practitioners, policymakers, and child advocates.

Description : 'There’s a growing awareness that for the good of their health, children need to be out and about more, with their friends, exploring the outdoor world in their own way.' - Nicola Butler, Director of the Free Play Network It is widely acknowledged that children today do not get outdoors often enough and there are serious concerns about children's activity levels and rising associated behavioural, mental and health problems. With such structured and technology-driven lives, it is easy for young children to stay indoors, play on computers and not socialise with other children in a healthy and active way. This book not only supports 'playing out' as an integral part of children’s natural growth and development, but also provides early years workers with a full programme of outdoor physical activities to promote physical, social and behavioural skills. This book is a guidebook to setting up an outdoor physical activity programme in any early years setting. The book focuses on how getting outdoors and taking part in physical activities will provide children with positive fun experiences to enhance their general learning and development. The programme can be adapted to suit any timescale - from a whole term to one or two days. Key features include showing practitioners: how to make the most of their outdoor area for all children step by step explanations to the outdoor activities how to engage participants (including parents) how to set up and plan activities ideas for group and individual assessment how to carry out risk assessments how an outdoors programme can change children's lives for the better.

Description : Hobbies—now that sounds like a great idea. We all have them in various guises. Most of them are hands-on and can be done in our spare time. So can we harness our hobbies to help the world? To help save our planet? Not only is this eBook a call to celebrate and recognise the importance hands-on craftwork plays in humanity, i.e. craft as play (adults) and play as craft (children). It is also a call to use this craftwork for the planets future! This eBook responds with a resounding YES!.....Yet but how? The way we are purchasing our ‘stuff’, wastes millions of dollars we spend on gadgets and increases pollution and surveillance encouraged through expenditure tracking. All this is taxing the limited resources of our planet. All the while, this enhances the position of corporations and governments in controlling our day-to-day lives, yet does nothing to help our families and ourselves even in the short term. A handyperson, jack-of-all-trades and master of none, kitchen whiz, undertake hobbies green thumb, geek, hacker, IT nerd, wilder, prim-itive/prime-itive, survivalist and so forth. We can find them in sheds, kitchens, intentional communities, eco-villages, hackerspaces, gardens and IT labs. All these folks use a horizontal way of innovating, learning, sharing information—peer-with-peer. For too long, our hands on hobby skills have been overlooked and therefore not recognised for the positive contribution they can offer to our planet’s problems. Towards the end of the eBook, we undertake a fill-it-in step-by-step ‘action plan’ where one can help take your day-to-day hobby and use it to help save the planet! A big ask? Well, maybe. A bit silly? No way. You are already well on your way with your present hobby. Give this step-by-step process a go and let us know the results on the eBooks Facebook page. Our planet deserves our crafty help!
