In this volume, Harry Morgan covers the history, theory, and practices that influence early childhood education with an emphasis on infant and toddler care and education. He also presents a comparison of the conflict between educational planners who support early childhood studies and state school systems whose cost-saving measures are dismantling traditional early childhood programs to conform to their misinterpretation of the No Child Left Behind Act. Early Childhood Education provides descriptions of child-centered teaching, an explanation of our government's role in providing educational support, recommended instructional strategies, and guidance for home schooling parents.
