In a context of widespread expansion of education and care provision for young children, the staffing of early childhood services in Europe is a critical quality issue. However, systematically assembled data across countries on the education/training and structure of the early years workforce are limited. Who works in education and care settings for young children? What professional studies are required? How similar or how varied are the qualification profiles and fields of work? This book provides answers to these questions. With funding from the German Federal Ministry for Family Affairs, Senior Citizens, Women and Youth, the SEEPRO project based at the State Institute of Early Childhood Research (IFP) in Munich/Bavaria worked closely with country experts to develop the 27 country profiles. In addition, cross-national perspectives and key workforce issues are highlighted which will be of interest for those engaged in early years professional education/training as well as for researchers, practitioners and policy makers.

The four nations of the UK each have distinctive policy and curricula in relation to Early Childhood Education and Care (ECEC). This new textbook offers a comprehensive look at early years education in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales, bringing the curriculum frameworks for each country together in one place. Drawing on the cultural and practical pedagogy of each curriculum, this book aims to develop students’ understanding of the development, care, education, health, well-being and upbringing of young children across the UK in a social, pedagogical and policy context. Divided into two sections, the first examines each country’s learning and teaching requirements in detail within a policy context. The book then explores the similarities and differences between the curricula, focusing on key areas such as play, the indoor and outdoor learning environment, the family and assessment. Accessible and engaging, this book will help students to analyse and question practice both in their own country and across all four Home Nations. Features include: case studies to illustrate practice and a frequently asked questions section in each chapter to clarify key points and opportunities for reflection and debate. Including contributions from expert practitioners in each country, this text is essential reading for all students studying early childhood and will help them to understand the impact of policy on children and families across the UK.

Professionalism in Early Childhood Education and Care

International Perspectives

The professionalism of the early childhood sector has gained prominence on the policy agendas of many countries. National pedagogical frameworks or curricula and an upsurge of pathways to gaining or upgrading qualifications has led to a pervasive terminology of professionalism. Yet, despite the pervasiveness of this terminology, the question of what professionalism means in early years contexts remains open to debate. This book draws together the work of an international group of scholars who have engaged with this question. They ask: How can professionalism be conceptualised in early childhood settings? How might one act professionally in increasingly diverse and changing social and cultural contexts? Do we have a common ground of understanding about these terms? Are there key concepts that can be agreed upon? Drawing on research and experience across a wide range of national contexts, this book seeks an understanding of early childhood professionalism in local contexts that might throw light on the global implications of this term. This book was published as a special issue in the European Early Childhood Education Research Journal.

All Because of Henry is the heart-rending story of Nuala Gardner and her remarkable struggle to bring up two autistic children - with the help of Sir Henry, Wee Henry and Thomas, the family's incredible four-legged friends. In the bestselling A Friend Like Henry, Nuala told how their beautiful golden retriever helped provide a miraculous breakthrough into her son Dale's severely autistic world. Now, in the much-anticipated sequel, Dale turns 17 and he's ready for the world - but is the world ready for him? And can their new dog, Thomas, have the same amazing effect on Nuala's autistic daughter Amy? As she faces up to a new set of challenges, Nuala begins to realise that the struggles of the past are nothing to what's still to come. And she must also face up to the ordeal of her crumbling marriage and find the strength to carry on against a backdrop of adversity, prejudice, family secrets and some very unexpected twists. All Because of Henry is the extraordinary true story of one woman's family, of overcoming obstacles, and of the wonderful dogs that helped them through it all. And it's a story that did not end with Sir Henry - it began - and it continues here, in warmth, heartbreak, hard times and, ultimately, triumph.
