In an era in which environmental education has been described as one of the most pressing educational concerns of our time, further insights are needed to understand how best to approach the learning and teaching of environmental education in early childhood education. In this book we address this concern by identifying two principles for using play-based learning early childhood environmental education. The principles we identify are the result of research conducted with teachers and children using different types of play-based learning whilst engaged in environmental education. Such play-types connect with the historical use of play-based learning in early childhood education as a basis for pedagogy. In the book ‘Beyond Quality in ECE and Care’ authors Dahlberg, Moss and Pence implore readers to ask critical questions about commonly held images of how young children come to construct themselves within social institutions. In similar fashion, this little book problematizes the taken-for-grantedness of the childhood development project in service to the certain cultural narratives. Cutter-Mackenzie, Edwards, Moore and Boyd challenge traditional conceptions of play-based learning through the medium of environmental education. This book signals a turning point in social thought grounded in a relational view of (environmental) education as experiential, intergenerational, interspecies, embodied learning in the third space. As Barad says, such work is based in inter-actions that can account for the tangled spaces of agencies. Through the deceptive simplicity of children’s play, the book stimulates deliberation of the real purposes of pedagogy and of schooling. Paul Hart, University of Regina, Canada

The vision of Learning Environments for Young Children: Rethinking Library Spaces and Services is about learning, families, and community, where the public library presents a community-based educational setting in which librarians serve as educators, guides, coaches, and facilitators of lifelong, active learning; access for children to enriching, satisfying, and developmentally appropriate resources and learning opportunities; diverse collections, programs, and technical resources for young children and the adults in their lives; programs and resources that encourage children's focused participation, creativity, critical thinking, cooperation, and problem solving; and a nonjudgmental, integrated, and interdisciplinary approach to lifelong learning, developing the whole person, child or adult. Included in Learning Environments for Young Children are field-tested measuring instruments that you and your staff can use to conduct a qualitative assessment of your library's children's services. These ready-to-use forms will help you collect information that will highlight the importance of early childhood services in presentations to funding sources, trustees, and other key stakeholders.

This volume presents current research on the connections between the home and family environment on children’s mathematics development. Focusing on infancy through first grade, it details the role of parents and other caregivers in promoting numeracy and the ways their active participation can prepare young children for learning about formal mathematics. Research data answer key questions regarding the development of numeracy alongside cognitive and linguistic skills, early acquisition of specific math skills, and numeracy of children with atypical language skills. The book also provides practical recommendations for parents and other caregivers as well as implications for future research studies and curriculum design. Included in the coverage: Ways to optimize home numeracy environments. Individual differences in numerical abilities. Cross-cultural comparisons and ways to scaffold young children's mathematical skills. Mathematics and language in the home environment. Center-based and family-based child care. Games and home numeracy practice. Early Childhood Mathematics Skill Development in the Home Environment is an essential resource for researchers, graduate students, and professionals in infancy and early childhood development, child and school psychology, early childhood education, social work, mathematics education, and educational psychology.

How do young children learn? There is a popular misconception that learning only takes place in school from the age of 4 years. In reality, significant brain development occurs between birth and age three. The places in which this learning takes place are the home, the nursery and the wider urban environment. The nature and quality of these places and spaces, and perhaps more importantly how parents and carers enable this interaction, is critical. This is primarily a guide for parents, carers and others responsible for young children's welfare. Including over 80 images, it illustrates how the environment can be adapted to optimise their developmental potential. It explains how architecture, if designed with the child in mind, can provide the best opportunities for them to develop and thrive in the earliest years.

Using a practice-based focus and a researcher lens, the contributors consider the ways in which environments for children enhance or diminish educational experiences, how social constructs about what is good for children influence environmental design, and what practitioners can do in their own work when creating learning environments for young children. There are copious examples from practice, lessons learned, and illustrations and photographs of key aspects of the environments they discuss. Organized into three parts, this essential text addresses: Aesthetics, politics, and space configurations in school environments for young children. Outdoor spaces, beginning with intentionally designed playscapes, children’s gardens, and spontaneous improvisational play venues. The role of environments outside school, including informal learning environments that promote science knowledge, museum spaces, and virtual environments. “Through rich examples and clear explanations of the historical, political, and aesthetic dimensions of design, [Kuh and her colleagues] help us think critically about environments and provide theoretical and practical tools to support our efforts.” —Benjamin Mardell, professor, Early Childhood Education, Lesley University. “An enlightening book that gives educators new lenses for thinking about and creating the kinds of places that can optimize children’s growth and learning, especially in this era of standardization. Educators need this book!” —Nancy Carlsson-Paige, professor emerita, Lesley University “For everyone who wants to take educational settings beyond minimal standards, this collection is a thoughtful and inspiring guide.” —Louise Chawla, professor, Environmental Design Program, University of Colorado, Boulder
