This bestselling guide to undertaking your Early Years research project takes the reader on a practical step-by-step journey. Breaking down each section into accessible and digestible topics, and accompanied by a multitude of practical examples, case studies, research summaries and key points, the author brings this process to life. The updated and revised fourth edition includes:
  • Useful additional resources at the end of each chapter
  • Extended material on the child’s voice within research
  • Signposted glossary terms throughout the text
  • Updated website materials for further study

From learning how to structure and organise your project, through to the final presentation and written report of your findings, this is the essential guide and companion for undergraduate and postgraduate students throughout their early childhood and social science courses.

Guy Roberts-Holmes will be discussing key ideas in Doing Your Early Years Research Project, a SAGE Masterclass for early years students and practitioners in collaboration with Kathy Brodie. Find out more here.

In The Press

As a student attempting to conduct research and write academically, I would definitely recommend this book to any student in the early years field. The book provides an in-depth knowledge of concepts, methods, structure and research process. It also includes experiences of students which is a great help for beginners and provides actual guidance from the beginning till the end.
