Early Childhood Care and Education in Canada
Past, Present, and Future
Larry Prochner and Nina Howe reflect the variation within the field by
bringing together a multidisciplinary group of experts to address key
issues in the field: What programs are currently available and what are
their origins? How are adults prepared for work in these programs? How
do children within the programs spend their day? What policies guide
the programs? How has the field reflected on itself through research?
There are no simple answers, but the essays in this collection
contribute to a creative reframing of the questions. The authors
include psychologists, sociologists, historians, teacher educators, and
social policy analysts.
