Publisher Description

Kia tipu te wairua toi - Fostering the creative spirit: Arts in early childhood education captures the spirit of the New Zealand early childhood curriculum Te Whariki. At the same time, this book showcases relevant examples of good teaching practice in Aotearoa New Zealand, early childhood Arts research and provocations about the Arts in early childhood education. It situates the Arts as an integral, essential, natural part of the early years. The text will be relevant to student teachers and teachers in New Zealand and to all those who have an interest in the Arts and their place in education.
