Understanding Early Years Policy
Baldock, Peter; Fitzgerald, Damien; Kay, Janet
Paul Chapman Publishing
The book is about policy in the area of early years services and that phrase may need some clarification. For the most part, therefore, this book deals with nursery schools and classes and with services provided by full day care nurseries, pre-schools, creches, childminders, after-school clubs and holiday play schemes. This book begins with information About the Author, Preface and seven chapters. Each chapter includes an activity, conclusion, and suggestions for further reading: (1) What is Policy and Why is it Important?; (2) The Development of Early Years Policy So Far; (3) Influences on Early Years Policy Development; (4) Implementing Early Years Policy; (5) The Impact of Policy; (6) Analysing the Impact of Policy; and the final chapter (7) Concluding Comments. It concludes with Useful websites, Glossary, References, Author Index and Subject Index. [This book was published by Paul Chapman Publishing.]
