Early childhood education today has been influenced by key figures such as Froebel, Montessori, Isaacs and MacMillan. Much recent research has supported their ideas although the ways in which they are implemented continue to evolve.
You can learn more about these thinkers and the contemporary application of their ideas through our books, newsletters and Journals, and our training and events.

The Early Education Journal
The online back catalogue of our Journals is available to members. Past issues cover the influence of key figures in early childhood education such as the educational philosophies of Froebel, Montessori, Steiner and Pikler or the
the influence of Susan Isaacs and Vivian Gussin-Paley on observing child development.
Susan Isaacs' book, The Educational Value of the Nursery School , is a classic work on early childhood education which has been continually in print since the 1930s. It's just one of the books we publish to support greater understanding of early childhood education.
Our resource pages include information about the educational philosophies of thinkers such as Froebel and Malaguzzi, as well as reflections from contemporary researchers and practitioners.
