Product Description

Theories of Childhood examines the work of five groundbreaking child development and education theorists.

  • Maria Montessori stressed the need for carefully prepared classroom environments
  • Erik Erikson developed an approach to making children health and comfortable
  • Jean Piaget expanded our knowledge of children's thought processes
