History of Early Childhood Education

A History of Early Childhood Education in Canada, Australia, and New Zealand unwinds the tangled threads of history that of new visions of childhood that originated in England and Europe, revealing how these three similar but distinct colonies developed early education systems that maintained the integrity of the ideas that inspired them but adapted them to suit local ideas, politics, and indigenous and immigrant populations. This unique account of early childhood education in comparative perspective shows how discourses and developments in the past have shaped the way we educate our children in the present. It will appeal to teachers, researchers, historians, and policy-makers who seek fresh insight into how to reconcile educational theory and practice in an increasingly global world.
