This book offers an excellent collection of chapters which encourage early years practitioners to examine their practice in the light of research concepts and gain an understanding of the processes of preparing for, doing and learning from research. The book bridges practice and research, by articulating and exemplifying them as rigorous, thorough and ethical encounters and illustrates that work-based research is as meaningful and important as academic research. Highly recommended for everyone who thinks to conduct research in their own work place' -
