Early Years Policy and Practice: a critical alliance

By Pat Tomlinson (Critical Publishing, 20)

This is the first in a new series designed to encourage critical thinking about childcare policy. Pat Tomlinson, who was head of the early years programme at the former Children's Workforce Development Council, scrutinises the development of policy since 1900 right up to the present, covering family structures, status and public policy, and the cultural aspects of health and well-being.

Questions for the reader to reflect on keep the focus tightly on critical thinking throughout and there are fascinating insights into what stimulates and enables policy-making.
