A leading text for Introduction to Early Childhood Education courses keeps students on the cutting edge of early childhood teaching practice and professionalism.

George Morrison’s Early Childhood Education Today presents current, research-based information on providing high-quality early education to all children so that they can be successful in school and in life. The new edition retains the engaging style that has made the book so popular and provides practical examples of authentic teaching practices used by master teachers. Its strong coverage of development in the age/grade-specific chapters, emphasis on diversity, and coverage of contemporary topics and issues make this text stand apart from other early childhood education texts.


The Fourteenth Edition integrates 14 themes that are critical to the field today: the importance of all children’s language and literacy development and competence; teaching children who may need help with English language learning; teaching in increasingly diverse classrooms; applying developmentally appropriate practices; closing the achievement gap; integrating special education and early childhood education services; teaching in inclusive classrooms; closing school readiness gaps; the expanding role of preschool education; meeting the challenges of teacher accountability; integrating STEAM subjects into the curriculum; providing for children’s mental health; using technology to support learners; and developing as a professional.
