Understanding Children: Foundations for Quality

Understanding Children: Foundations for Quality has been extensively expanded with an increased emphasis on providing a quality, nurturing environment for children while in care and outlines a new set of guidelines for adults interacting with young children.

The third edition uses recent research studies on children in care and the effects of childcare on young children's later emotional development and social behaviour. Using the ideas presented in Understanding Children, parents and professionals will be assisted in developing a strong framework for successfully guiding and managing children's behaviour.

Young children are spending more time in childcare and parents expect their children will be well cared for and educated in quality environments. Understanding Children identifies key indicators for quality and presents case studies to allow optimum learning and implementation of the ideas.
