"Children, Youth and Environments" (CYE) Announces a Special Issue on Greening Early Childhood Education
Bailie, Patti; Rosenow, Nancy
International Journal of Early Childhood Environmental Education, v2 n1 p181-183 2014
The collection of papers contained in this special issue was elicited by a worldwide call for papers to explore settings that provided nature experiences for young children, with attention given to the effects that these initiatives have on the holistic development and environmental awareness of the children, as well as impacts on the teachers and staff involved. More than two dozen abstracts were received, of which eleven articles were chosen. These included seven research articles, three reports from the field, and one personal voice essay. These papers reflected diverse methods of connecting children with nature and the articles fell into several categories including a literature review on the benefits of children's engagement with nature; natural outdoor play spaces; nature preschools and forest kindergartens; and the connection between nature and children's holistic development. In addition, five books reviews, one movie review, and a mention of other publications of note completed the issue.
