The most rapid and significant phase of development occurs in the first three years of a child's life.

The Supporting Children from Birth to Three series focuses on the care and support of the very youngest children.

Each book takes a key aspect of working with this age group and gives clear and detailed explanations of relevant theories together with practical examples to show how such theories translate into good working practice. Effective planning and observation are fundamental to young children's learning and development.
