About the Authors
  • Young Children and the Environment is intended for tertiary students in Early Childhood Education and as a reference for child care practitioners and primary school teachers to promote education for sustainability (EfS) from birth to 8 years. The focus is on early education services, including day care centres, kindergartens, preschools, preparatory year classrooms, and Years 1-3 in schools. The book draws on recent literature in the areas of organisational, educational and cultural change and education for environmental sustainability. Early childhood case studies and vignettes are integrated throughout to exemplify leadership in creating change for sustainability. The text refers to national and international initiatives such as ‘Child Friendly Cities’, ‘Sustainable Schools’, and ‘Health Promoting Schools’ and explores the existing and potential links with early childhood education.
