The perfect guide for students who need to get to grips with learning theories and how they relate to the  early years, this book covers Early and Modern theorists and their theories, and how they apply today. Bursting with full colour photographs, case studies, activities and discussion points, each chapter explores the theorist and the theory; what the theory looks like in practice; the strengths and weaknesses of each theory; and its links to other theorists.

This new edition includes:

  • Three new chapters on Bowlby, Dweck and Claxton

  • New reflective activities

  • New critical questions following the case studies
