The SAGE Handbook of Early Childhood Research is a major addition to the literature on early childhood. More than an introduction to the field, it offers significant challenges, and progress in thinking, for theory, research, policy and practice – and for the relationships between those dimensions. Ann Farrell, Sharon Kagan and Kay Tisdall are extremely well-qualified to oversee such a collection, bringing as they do substantial expertise from three continents.
This handbook provides a comprehensive, wide-ranging and global overview of the intersection of research with practice and policy in early childhood development. The all-star cast, with expertise across the world's regions and the sectors of early childhood, provides probing and forward-looking syntheses, with extraordinarily useful recommendations for the field.
With this book the distinguished authors provide a global perspective on the transformative potential of childhood research. By illuminating the use of ethical methodologies and a rights-based approach to research, the reader learns about avenues to address the diverse contexts of young children, investigate conceptual and theoretical underpinnings to early childhood research as a timely commitment to reform policies and practices.
