Children are amazingly competent learners from an early age. Given the right setting, they take in and process all sorts of information.
In fact, children rapidly build a knowledge base of information, skills and procedures which allows them to master most of the features of their world.
The Early Years is a resource for teachers, students, caregivers and health professionals who work with children from birth to eight years. It provides:
- A complete picture of childhood development. From this picture teachers can build the best into their teaching practice
- A cognitive perspective and focuses on the young child as an autonomous thinker, learner and problem solver.
