Learning to surf: Embracing change in the early childhood sector
Chapter 22 is the final chapter in the book, embracing change in the early childhood sector, and it returns to the ‘big picture’ of ECEC. The author draws on surfing and ocean metaphors, as she argues that similar to the sea, the contexts in which early childhood professionals live and work will not remain still. The policy demands and fragmentation which EC teachers and educators may find overwhelming at times, is acknowledged and discussed. On an uplifting note, it is maintained that ECEC professionals can make a positive difference - they can do more than survive during these times of rapid change, and instead they can thrive.
