Introducing Bronfenbrenner : A Guide for Practitioners and Students in Early Years Education (Hardcover)
about this item
Children learn in contexts and the spaces, places and people they come into contact with have a deep influence on their development. Urie Bronfenbrenner’s bio-ecological model of development places the child at the centre of this complex network and his influence has been extensive in early childhood education. This book presents an introduction to Bronfenbrenner’s model of development, by drawing on practice-based research to identify and animate key elements of his model’s impact. It illustrates how his model can help bring to quality to early learning environments and incorporates it into daily work with young children through vignettes, case studies and examples of good practice.
