Diversity And Difference In Early Childhood Education: Issues For Theory And Practice: n/a
Early childhood professionals are often required to work with children and families from a range of diverse backgrounds. This book goes beyond simplistic definitions of diversity, encouraging a much broader understanding and helping early childhood educators develop a critical disposition towards assumptions about children and childhood in relation to diversity, difference and social justice.

I enjoyed this book immensely, in particular theoretical perspectives and globalisation. This has deepened my appreciation for a feminist post structural approach applied to early childhood education and why over the last 30 years of being involved in the early childhood industry I am so fortunate to witness early childhood policies and regulations that increasingly promote a socially just early education system. The task is now for practice to follow philosophy so that all family structures are 'included' in early childhood education.
This book is unmitigated rubbish — the 'post-structuralist feminist' content, anyway.
