Discussing the role of observation in the Early Years environment, this title helps Early Years students and practitioners understand the principles and ethical guidelines of observation and assessment methods, and encourages them to take a critical stance on different observation methods. It examines current initiatives and policies as a context for discussing the theoretical background, and draws on a number of methodologies in order to develop clear and systematic ways of making observations, recording data and using it to evaluate and assess children.
