Overview

Early Learners in Preschools and Kindergartens: 50 Case Stories in Child Development, Inclusion, Collaboration and Special Needs is a compilation of fictional case stories representing typical day to day narratives of early learners aged 3-6. Many stories represent typical students in day-to-day learning situations and challenges, and others include elements of students who may experience a long-term or transitory challenge, including those with a diagnosis or an identification of an exceptionality. All stories focus on teaching and learning from a positive perspective of care and support for the development of early learners.
