With increasing cultural, linguistic, social and ethnic diversity within our early years, care and education settings, equal opportunities and anti-discriminatory practice are key issues for early years practitioners and students. Equal Opportunities in Early Childhood looks at all the factors involved, examines recent developments, and explains how the very latest legislation and guidelines can be put into effective practice with children on a daily basis. Highly readable and practical, Equal Opportunities in Early Childhood makes clear links between anti-discriminatory practice and child development - and most importantly, links theories and practice with a sound basis of children's own knowledge, experiences and understanding.

Features include practical activities, scenarios, definitions of key phrases and concepts, and useful illustrations.

Equal Opportunities in Early Childhood is an essential resource for those working with children of all ages - from nurseries and other daycare settings, to primary schools and out-of-school care services. This is also an ideal text for S/NVQ Levels 3 and 4, Foundation Degree students, tutors and assessors, as well as those advising or promoting effective practice.

Review quote

The author has been controversial in the way she has written the book, so it will provide a useful resource for raising discussion about areas of inequality and be a good starting point for developing effective equality policy and practice in the early years setting. * Gina Houston, Early Years Equality *
