Book description

Health and Education in Early Childhood presents conceptual issues, research findings, and program and policy implications in promoting well-being in health and education in the first five years of life. Leading researchers in the multidisciplinary fields of early learning and human capital formation explore the themes of the integration of health and education in promoting young children's well-being; the timing of influences on child development; and the focus on multiple levels of strategies to promote healthy early development. Through this, a unique framework is provided to better understand how early childhood health and education predictors and interventions contribute to well-being at individual, family, community and societal levels, and to policy development. Key topics addressed in the chapters include nutritional status, parenting, cognitive development and school readiness, conduct problems and antisocial behavior, obesity, and well-being in later childhood and adulthood.

Reviews

‘… an exceptionally strong and timely contribution to both research and policy regarding early child development … covers a great deal of territory, and does so within a clear, timely, and compelling framework that can be used by individuals in many roles, not only researchers. It should be important reading for policy makers …'

Daniel Keating - University of Michigan

'This terrific book combines both rigorous research and perceptive policy analysis to provide a compelling action agenda across a broad range of children’s needs. A great contribution to the field.'

Sara Watson - National Director, ReadyNation/America’s Edge
