Early childhood environmental education: Making it mainstream

Davis, Julie M. & Elliott, Sue (2003) Early childhood environmental education: Making it mainstream. Research into Practice. Early Childhood Australia, Inc., Watson, ACT..


This monograph is part of the 'Research in Practice' series of Early Childhood Australia, Australia's peak national professional association for early childhood educators. It makes the case for environmental education/education for sustainability to be an integral part of early childhood education and explores how to implement this in holistic, empowering and integrated ways into early childhood settings and services. The book includes case studies that affirm the role of young children as 'agents of change' in collaboration with their teachers. There is also a wide range of ideas and resources included here to support early childhood teachers prepared to 'make a difference'.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
