Ailwood, Joanne, Boyd, Wendy, & Theobald, Maryanne Agnes (2016) Introduction. In Ailwood, Joanne, Boyd, Wendy, & Theobald, Maryanne Agnes (Eds.) Understanding Early Childhood Education and Care in Australia Practices and perspectives. Allen & Unwin, Sydney, N.S.W, pp. 1-9.
Australian perspectives and practices within early childhood education and care are underpinned by understandings of children, how they learn, their emotional and physical needs and their connectedness to family and their communities. There is strong international research evidence supporting the value of providing high quality and accessible early childhood education and care, and this evidence base continues to grow. Drawing on international and Australian research, this book provides an introduction to this complex and multifaceted field.
Impact and interest:
Citation counts are sourced monthly from and 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 theindexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
