Sandvik, Ninni – Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, 2020
This article takes a discrepancy between experienced pedagogical and childish life orientations as a point of entry and speculates about loosening play from its organised position as form and instead looking at play as processes. Accordingly, the speculative focus of the article is on how different orientations might come into existence within an…

Evans, Lesley Anne; Gold, Lindsay A. – Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, 2020
Pre literacy skills in young children have been well established. Explorations of the parallel concept of pre mathematic skills in young children are minimal.

Press, Frances; Harrison, Linda; Wong, Sandie; Gibson, Megan; Cumming, Tamara; Ryan, Sharon – Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, 2020

Elfström Pettersson, Katarina – Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, 2019
This article explores how a template in documentation of preschool systematic quality development work acts to produce elements of quality. Assuming that documentation produces rather than represents preschool quality, and using a post-humanist agential realist perspective, the article shows how thematic work, care and education become elements of…

Shin, Minsun – Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, 2019
This colloquium brings forward the "inside" voices of early childhood student teachers in order to critically examine the impact of the edTPA (Educative Teacher Performance Assessment) on student teaching experiences, especially the "educative" function that the edTPA claims.

Osgood, Jayne; Andersen, Camilla Eline – Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, 2019
In this paper we grapple with the ways in which real-world issues directly impact children's lives and ask "what else" gets produced through encounters with children's global news media, specifically within the contexts of the United Kingdom and Norway. Our aim is to experiment with storytelling and worldling practices as a means to open…

Fairchild, Nikki – Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, 2019
Engaging with posthuman theorising, this article puts to work a number of concepts to produce generative reimaginings of early years leadership. In 1992, Deleuze argued that we are witnessing a transition from societies of confinement to 'societies of control'. In societies of control, power operates through neo-liberal corporate worlds via a…

They followed a practice…

Morphis, Elizabeth A – Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, 2018
This article focuses on a shift in the author's approach to teaching a literacy course to a coaching-based model after observing pre-service teachers "struggle" to implement the teaching practices during on-site fieldwork with a kindergarten, first-, or second-grade child partner. The author discusses how she provided more timely…

Peers, Chris – Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, 2018
The theory of belonging as it arises in the theme of the Australian "Early Years Learning Framework" suggests a complex arrangement of philosophical concepts, which deserve rigorous explication and interrogation. In this article, the author draws out some of the most pertinent implications of 'belonging' for the theory of early learning…

Leafgren, Sheri – Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, 2018
"Professionalism was basically a ton of petty shit, nothing ever to do with standing up for children in the face of harmful rules, curriculum, other teachers, administrators, etc. It was basically how to comply." As the student quoted here makes clear, a "professional" teacher must learn to comply, even when doing so does harm…

Moxnes, Anna Rigmor; Osgood, Jayne – Contemporary Issues in Early Childhood, 2018
This article aims to challenge the prominence of reflexivity as a strategy for early childhood teachers to adopt by taking Norwegian early childhood teacher education as its focus. Observed micro-moments from a university classroom generate multilayered, multi-sensorial entangled narratives that address what reflection and diffraction are and what…
