This seminal Handbook responds to this need, drawing together a unique and valuable body of literature, research and case studies to make explicit the specific features of Froebelian education and provide key impulses for future research and practice in this area. Chapters present the sometimes divergent perspectives of leading educationalists, and so offer a uniquely comprehensive overview of Froebelian approaches, and their interaction with contemporary policies and insights. The Handbook explores five significant areas of scholarship and practice: - Part 1 examines the original Froebelian principles and practices in early childhood education in different parts of the world. - Part 2 presents case studies, development projects and practitioner publications exploring Froebelian approaches to early childhood education. - Part 3 details research studies which document, debate and evaluate Froebelian approaches. - Part 4 considers how Froebelian approaches might be sustained and adapted for use in various cultural contexts across the world. - Part 5 offers a re-articulation of research and policy. An essential resource for in-service and future practitioners, researchers, and policy-makers involved in early childhood education, this key text will promote discussion, aid analysis and further the practical application of Frobelian principles"--
