  • Science education in the early years is vital to assist young children to come to know and understand the world around them. In this second edition, Science in Early Childhood has been substantially updated and revised to include comprehensive coverage of the birth-to-eight age group. Drawing on the most up-to-date research, this edition presents current issues and debates relevant to pre-service teachers of early childhood science, both at pre-school and in the early years of schooling. This text complements the Australian Early Years Learning Framework and the Australian Curriculum: Science. Each chapter develops knowledge of key areas of science and explains how to guide children's learning. Learning objectives and chapter overviews identify key themes that will be covered, and the theory is enlivened through the use of detailed case studies and practical examples. Written by experts in the field, Science in Early Childhood is essential reading for pre-service teachers.
