By focusing on the early philosophies of learning and the key behavioral, cognitive, and social theorists, this book provides a comprehensive overview of children′s learning. The authors discuss the key learning theories, highlight the strengths and weaknesses of each approach and encourage reflection on how different approaches impact on the learning environment. The discussion finishes with an exploration of the new sociology of childhood. Examples are drawn from practice to highlight key concepts, and to make vital links between theory and practice.
