Summaries of theorists from Rousseau and Locke to well-known names such as Froebel and Montessori are presented here in their historical and social context, to help the reader understand their significance. The book is divided into three main sections – Early Influences, Modern Influences, and Challenges for Theorists in a Changing World – where the author links key theorists to the main issues and developments that face early years practitioners today, such as emotional intelligence, digital learning and Forest School. Theories are critiqued with strengths and weaknesses, case studies and comparisons to other theories. With case studies and discussion points.
