This book introduces and explores each of the five major groups of theories described in the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF) that inform practice in the early childhood field. It addresses the need for early childhood educators to better understand how their practice is underpinned by theories of learning and development. Educators draw from a range of perspectives, but it can sometimes be difficult to understand the link between theorists, theories and perspectives and their own practice. This book makes these links clear and easy to understand. Each chapter deals with a different group of theories, briefly outlining the major thrust of each group and what it might look like in practice. Some of the major theorists are then focused on in turn. Discussion starter topics and questions for reflection are included. The downloadable file Challenging Aspects of Practice (CAP) provides a tool to help educators identify and consider the theoretical perspectives that act to shape their practice. This tool relates to the National Quality Standard: Quality Area 1. [Back cover, ed].
