By Julia Manning-Morton (Open University Press, 22.99, ISBN 9780335246847)


Drawing on research with parents, children and a range of early years professionals, the author considers how well-being is interpreted in the early childhood field, and includes the views of very young children on their own well-being.

Important issues are explored, such as the need to prioritise children and families' socio-cultural contexts, develop a listening culture and address inequalities. There is is also focus on appropriate pedagogical approaches and aspects of practice that support children's well-being in early childhood settings, such as adult-child relationships, quality interactions, physical play and creative expression.
