The Early Education Journal

The Early Education Journal is published three times a year, normally in the Spring, Summer and Autumn.

Each journal takes on a theme, and articles may take the form of case studies, research write-ups, new pedagogical approaches or reviews from a range of practitioners in the early years field. Browse the list below to see details of recent guest editors and authors.

As a member of Early Education you will receive three issues of the Journal per year as part of your subscription, as well as being able to access back copies electronically.
