THE DISCOVERY OF EARLY CHILDHOOD

BY HELEN MAY

1ST ED REPRINT 2004

IN NEAR NEW CONDITION – JUST A NAME INSIDE FRONT COVER

Helen May’s foundation book on the discovery of new and often radical ideas concerning the care and education of young children in institutions established outside of the family home.

The story traverses both Europe, where these ideas were seeded, and New Zealand, where missionaries first transported the new progressive notion of infant schools as an experiment for educating young Maori children apart from their whanau and outside the kainga.

The title page of this book has the description 'the development of services for the care and education of very young children; mid eighteenth century Europe to mid twentieth century New Zealand'.
The history told in this book explores shifting attitudes towards children, and the role of women in society. Endnotes and an index are provided. The author is Professor of Early Childhood Teacher Education at Victoria University.
