The second edition of this comprehensive guide has been thoroughly revised in line with the latest legislation, particularly in the areas of child protection, day-care standards, SEN standards and disability rulings. As before Janet Kay focuses on the following issues: Children's rights. Children's safety. Anti-discriminatory practice. Equality. Confidentiality. Reflective practice. She also deals with the dilemmas that can arise from implementing such good practice. An invaluable aid to all childcare courses, this guide provides students with case studies and exercises that will help them develop and demonstrate their knowledge and understanding of the subject.

Review quote

"an ideal reader" "The comprehensive accounts of childcare are supplemented with case studies, so that theory is clearly related to practise" "The writing style is academic but not obscue, and any technical language is explained. For a tex-book the presentation is clear" --Sanford Lakoff
