The care and education of young children has a history that reflects not only the shifting attitudes to children but also the role of women in society.
Helen May traces the story back to its roots in the eighteenth century. In The Discovery of Early Childhood she entwines the unique story of the development of Early Childhood Education Services in New Zealand with the wider international picture of early childhood education history.
