New publication released from Kath Tayler and Deborah Price

Well done to Deborah Price and Kath Tayler on the release of their new publication ‘Gender Diversity and Inclusion in Early Years Education’.

Gender Diversity IMAGEThe book introduces practitioners to key aspects of gender in the early years and explores how to ensure that children and staff teams are supported in settings that have outstanding practice.

It also considers the implications of gender in the context of supporting children, families and practitioners. It examines the theoretical contexts that surround gender identity and explores current legislation and practice in order to provide practitioners with all the information they need to develop their own work and settings in an open and equal way.

Key chapters cover a theoretical approach to gender development; current legislation and the impact on early years practice; understanding gender fluidity and the way in which children express gender; creating gender equality when working with children and the role of manager in creating a supportive ethos.

This publication makes valuable reading for all early years’ practitioners and students that want to promote an inclusive environment for the children in their care, their families and colleagues, providing useful tasks, reflective points and links to websites and organisations.

Deborah Price said: “With this book we are hoping that early years practitioners will feel supported in order to view gender in a more fluid way”.

Kath Tayler is a Senior Lecturer in Early Years Education at the University of Brighton, UK. She has worked in early years for over 30 years as a nursery nurse, primary teacher and lecturer in early year’s education and care in both further and higher education.
