Recommended by ONCDC


Good option for new infant teachers curious about the RIE approach in group care. This is an easy to read book for new teachers, the chapters are short and simple. The principles of this book are applicable in most early childhood settings and a great beginner starting point.

Key Points:

  • Babies are active learners from birth
  • Early childhood teaching starts in the infant room


  • It’s only a first step doesn’t go too deep into building reflective practice as a teacher.
