This enables teacher agency for a transformative future that is reflective of democratic South Africa. This book aims to foster knowledge and understanding of curriculum, pedagogy and assessment relevant to local and international readers interested in Early Childhood Education, before starting school.

This book is edited by Hasina Ebrahim and Manjula Waniganayake, two high profile professors of early childhood education, with the assistance of Donna Hannaway and Matshediso Modise, senior lecturers with extensive experience in teacher education.
