Supported by recent research studies into the effects of child care on young children’s emotional development and social behaviour, Harrison describes quality early childhood environments and identifies those aspects essential for the development of children’s self-esteem and positive social behaviour. Students and professionals will find the new chapters are consistent with the knowledge required in both TAFE courses and for accreditation programs. Key indicators of quality, which relate to relationships with children and families, are presented and illustrated by real life case studies. Behaviours which concern both professional and parents such as biting, lying, bullying and ADHD are dealt with from a sound theoretical base, and effective strategies are presented. A practical framework for planning and programming for infants and young children, ideas for observation and action plans for successful strategies are presented. New content in the 3rd edition, Understanding Children: Foundations for quality includes: • Identifying the characteristics of quality care • Understanding the principles and framework for quality interactions • Strengthening self-esteem and positive behaviour • Developing action plans and strategies to encourage prosocial behaviour • Dealing with common behavioural concerns • Partnerships with parents
