Too Much, Too Soon? : Early Learning and the Erosion of Childhood Paperback

Part of the Early Years series



How to nurture young children's well-being and learning to reverse the erosion of childhood?

Children's lives have been speeded up by commercialisation, 'adultification', and the government's 'nappy curriculum' which 'schoolifies' them and pushes quasi-formal learning too soon.

Now, in twenty-three hard-hitting chapters, leading educators, researchers, policy makers and parents advocate alternative ways ahead for slowing childhood, better policy-making and, above all, the 'right learning at the right time' in children's growth ? learning when they are developmentally ready.
