This completely revised and updated second edition of Geography in the Early Years presents a lively and comprehensive overview of teaching and learning in geography.

Theoretical aspects of early years teaching in geography are complemented by up-to-date research findings and illustrated with discussion, a wealth of case studies, and suggestions for the development and implementation of sound geographical work in practice.

In a practitioner-friendly style, this book provides:

  • an examination of the essence of geography in terms of children's conceptions of the physical environment
  • a detailed description of geography in the national curriculum and of the place and nature of environmental education within early years teaching
  • guidelines for taking a whole school approach in policy, planning and organisation of geographical learning
  • examples of initial teacher training and continuing professional developments.

This highly accessible, illuminating book will be immensely helpful to teachers, student teachers, policy-makers and all other providers of education for children aged three to seven years.
