Diversity and Inclusion in Early Childhood

By Chandrika Devarakonda (Sage Publications, 21.99, ISBN 9780857028515).


The author takes evidence from a wide perspective and each chapter elaborates on issues such as gender, race and culture, gypsy, Roma and traveller families, EAL, SEN and disabililty.

The book does not shy away from controversy and debate around whether inclusion can be considered idealistic and these explorations serve to reinforce the reader's understanding of why inclusion is every child's right. There is plenty of practical advice to draw on, focusing on environment and resources, and involving children, families and practitioners themselves as part of the inclusive setting.
