- involving young children in research
- informed consent
- research tools with children under five
- researching children with special needs
- researching vulnerable groups
- researching other cultures
- multi-agency working
- loss and bereavement
- ethical practices when studying early childhood
- safe-guarding young children
- ethics and leadership
Examples from education, health and social work are examined, and there are chapter overviews, activities, case studies, points for discussion and recommendations for further reading and useful Websites in each chapter; which help to engage the reader and facilitate critical thinking and reflective practice. This is a comprehensive guide to a developing field for the early years student and practitioner.

What Reviewers Are Saying
'This challenging and stimulating book, which addresses the deeply contentious and critical area of how we address ethical issues in research, policy and practice in early years, is timely. It will be an invaluable support as both providers and practitioners respond to the demand that they reflect upon, evaluate, make visible and evidence their early years practice rigorously and systematically'
-Professor Christine Pascal, Director of the Centre for Research in Early Childhood (CREC)
