Summary "This new edition of Beyond Quality includes a foreword by one of the leading figures in the early childhood field, Carlina Rinaldi from Reggio Emilia. New material also includes the three authors considering how the book remains as relevant today as when it was first written and the challenges the book poses to mainstream early childhood theory, practice and research - why, in short, there remains an urgent need to get beyond quality and reconceptualise not only early childhood education and care, but also evaluation."--BOOK JACKET
