Early Childhood Research & Practice (ECRP), a peer-reviewed, Internet-only journal sponsored by the ERIC Clearinghouse on Elementary and Early Childhood Education (ERIC/EECE), covers topics related to the development, care, and education of children from birth to approximately age 8. The journal emphasizes articles reporting on practice-related research and on issues related to practice, parent participation, and policy. Also included are articles and essays that present opinions and reflections. The first part of this issue of ECRP contains the following major articles on research and practice: (1) "Education Matters in the Nurturing of the Beliefs of Preschool Caregivers and Teachers" (Mary Benson McMullen and Kazim Alat); (2) "Changing Curriculum for Early Childhood Education in England" (Young-Ihm Kwon); (3) "The Continuity Framework: A Tool for Building Home, School, and Community Partnerships" (E. Glyn Brown, Carolynn Amwake, Tim Speth, and Catherine Scott-Little); and (4) "Development of a Comprehensive Community Assessment of School Readiness" (David A. Murphey and Catherine E. Burns). The second part presents the following observations and reflections: "Modeling Collaboration, In-Depth Projects, and Cognitive Discourse: A Reggio Emilia and Project Approach Course" (Julie Bullard and Janis R. Bullock). An additional feature article details a project by Ohio kindergartners: "The Apple Project" (Debbie Danyi, Heather Sebest, Amy Thompson, and Lisa Young). The journal concludes with a recent ERIC database search on the training and education of early childhood teachers, and a description of new ERIC/EECE publications and activities along with general information and links related to the journal.
