‘More work to do’ PITW Book Chapter – Jan ’21

Hi all,

It’s very exciting for me to have an actual chapter in an actual book!

The intention for this chapter is to serve as a corrective to the lack of attention to equalities and diversity in the early childhood field, both within this book and more broadly within the Scottish context as a whole. To issue a corrective is recognise that something was incorrect before and I am incredibly grateful for the invitation to write this chapter.

At the same time, I recognise that, had equalities been addressed to a greater extent in the first place, the chapter might not have been needed at all.

I recommend the whole book. My chapter is free to access here https://postcardsfromscotland.co.uk/play-is-the-way

It’s written blog style rather than as an academic article, I hope this makes it more accessible for people.

I do hope the chapter sparks thought and creates conversation around the issues I raise,
