An ideal introduction to the pioneers of educational theory for anyone studying childcare, child development or education whether at further or higher education level. The first edition of this book has been a best-seller for almost a decade, identified as one of the top ten books for students of child development or early childhood care and education. In this new edition, there is an increased emphasis on both what practice based on particular theories of learning looks like and on criticisms of each theory: a new and improved edition; additional emphasis on what practice looks like; and common criticisms as well as the influence of each theory. A glossary is included in sections highlighting words and concepts particular to the theorist in question. Full-colour photographs are used to illustrate some aspects of each theory or approach. How Children Learn looks at a wide range of theorists who have influenced current understandings of how children learn and what this means for work with young children. The book summarises the findings and ideas of famous giants such as Montessori and Piaget as well as the more recent ideas of writers and thinkers such as Howard Gardner and Margaret Donaldson.

Praise for the first edition: "I feel that this book is very well structured and progressive and the way it introduces the topics is coherent and developmental. The use of pictures is extremely helpful as they support the text very effectively...I have found that any work by Tina Bruce is well researched and accessible and always recommend her to my students." Maureen Brookson, University of East Anglia Cultivating Creativity, 2nd edition, shows how early years practitioners can promote creativity in children. It explores the journey children take in developing their creativity, and helps students and practitioners to nurture creativity. Written by a leading expert in creativity, development and learning in young children, Cultivating Creativity links theory and practice to provide a clear framework for this difficult, but vital, aspect of development and learning. Taking a broad conceptualised view of creativity, the author addresses the issue not just in terms of the arts but also the role that creativity has within sciences and humanities. This new edition covers recent and ongoing curriculum, legislative and policy changes that affect teaching in this area. Recent advances in the field are also addressed including, brain research, movement, outdoor learning and individual learning.
