Editorial Reviews


?The potential of qualitative research for authentically sharing children's experiences in child care, preschool, and other early education setting is the focus of this 2-part collection. The number of articles that link children's developmental growth with the adults who influence them in early childhood settings is exciting. An excellent guide for those new to this method of inquiry, the book underscores the importance of qualitative methodology to processes of change in programs designed to meet the needs of young children.?-Readings

By Reginald Williams on May 31, 2007
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you are an early childhood researcher and you need a book that gives you an excellent compilation of insight on what works best for designing a study, Hatch's book gives some of the best, clearest examples that I have read thus far.

He takes a balanced approach by highlighting quantitative, ethnographic, interview-based, and mixed designs. The first half of the book does an excellent job of highlighting research paradigms from an early childhood perspective.
