The vision for the Early Childhood Education Series is to publish books that examine, analyze, and unpack the complexity of early childhood care and education. We recognize the field as including children from birth through age 8 and their families, who participate in a wide variety of settings and contexts. Just as early childhood educators traditionally value the whole child, we are interested in a wide variety of topics for our audience. Our aim is to put forward ideas that promote new conversations, practices, research, scholarship, and policies, deepening the discussion for those grappling with practice and issues in the field. In doing so, our mission is to sustain, develop, and support the individuals who identify with early care and education.
The Early Childhood Education Series has been in print for over 30 years. Within that time, we have published hundreds of innovative and cutting-edge books that continue to be invaluable to the field. The audiences utilizing TCP books as “go-to” volumes include but are not limited to teachers, educators, care providers, administrators, policymakers, and leaders.
