For many years Programming and Planning in Early Childhood Settings has been a valuable resource for early childhood education students who intend to work in a variety of early education settings such as childcare centres, kindergartens, the early years of primary school and outside-school-hours care. The text outlines the general processes involved in planning and programming, and also presents principles and issues for discussion. Early childhood educators are encouraged to evaluate their current approaches to planning and programming, to ensure that these procedures are working effectively, and to develop strategies for future innovation and change in areas that need strengthening. The third edition of Programming and Planning in Early Childhood Settings has been thoroughly updated to reflect current influences on thinking and practice in early childhood education in the Australasian region.
