Abstract

This book appears at a significant time for those who work in early childhood education. Many governments are seeking to expand the availability of services for young children. One result of these initiatives is that across the world children are entering institutionalised care and education at an ever earlier age and for an increasingly extended period of their young lives. The evidence suggests that the experiences of children in their early years are critical determinants of future progress and attainment educationally, economically and as a member of their social community. These changing contexts place a burden of responsibility on those who provide early childhood services to ensure that they benefit rather than damage children's potential. This means paying serious attention to ensuring the quality of experience for the child as they transfer across an increasing number of settings in their early years.
