Lev S Vygotsky presents what is possibly one of the first systematic challenges to Vygotsky's theory and explores contemporary theories more suitable to early childhood practice and philosophy. New ways of thinking about planning frameworks and theoretical bases are introduced regarding babies and preschoolers in care situations. This book intorduces new concepts such as the need for reciprocal scaffolding, the notion of the ethos of attachment where children's dispositions towards learning are paramount, plus the need to move away from 'cute' to 'authentic' planning and avaluation practices.
