Product description


This practical guide translates the complex subject of neuroscience ... and distils its implications for practice. -- Nursery World

The neuroscience of early childhood development is advancing with unprecedented speed, and early childhood caretakers and educators need a source to support them in understanding and distilling the new findings into usable knowledge for practice. Conkbayir's readable book nicely accomplishes this goal. It will be a handy addition to educators' toolkits. -- Mary Helen Immordino-Yang, Associate Professor of Education, Psychology and Neuroscience, Brain and Creativity Institute, Rossier School of Education, University of Southern California, USA

This book offers a new perspective on the developing child and links to new and traditional theories of child development. It shines a much needed spotlight on development of our very youngest children, including what happens in the womb. The combination of theory and practice makes this a very accessible and relevant book for Early Childhood students and practitioners. -- Helen Perkins, Senior Lecturer, Childhood and Family Studies, Faculty of Education, Health and Wellbeing, University of Wolverhampton, UK

This book is a valuable addition to the academic study of Early Childhood and early years practice. The author engages the reader in a journey to support how a critical understanding of neuroscience is vital in our work. --Eunice Lumsden, Head of Early Years, The University of Northampton, UK
