Abstract/Notes: The twentieth century was a time of great change in early years education. As the century opened, the use of Froebel's kindergarten methods infiltrated more infant classrooms. The emergence of psychology as a discipline, and especially its work on child development, was beginning to influence thinking about how infants learn through play. While there were many teachers who maintained Victorian approaches in their classrooms, some others experimented, were widely read and a few even travelled to the US and Europe and brought new ideas home. As well, there was increasing political support for new approaches to the "new education" ideas at the turn of the century. All was not plain sailing, however, and this book charts both the progress made and the obstacles overcome in the course of the century, as the nation battled its way through world wars and depressions. It's an interesting story as the author discusses changes in school buildings, teaching practice and teacher education, the teaching of reading and other curriculum areas, Maori education and the emergence of kohanga reo and the teaching of Maori language in primary schools. Along the way we meet a range of individuals, including C.E. Beeby, Sylvia Ashton-Warner, Gwen Somerset, Don Holdaway, Elwyn Richardson, Marie Bell and Marie Clay and the many less well-known but significant people who worked in or influenced early years education. We also meet many well-known New Zealanders who have recounted their first days at school. This is a fascinating account of a rich history that has involved us all. And yes, school milk gets a mention.

Abstract/Notes: This article focuses on Inspector Lydia Longmore and 29 infant mistresses who were leading South Australian infant schools in the interwar year era. During 1926/1927 Longmore and each infant mistress in the state school system were interviewed by a journalist about her career path and current role, and profiles of their work featured week by week in the News, a highly regarded newspaper. These accounts provide valuable insights into the early years of schooling and constitute the data for this article. The first section merges the women educators’ life histories with the development of the state school system in South Australia. The second section profiles their careers and professional networks in 1926/1927: 23 of the infant mistresses were in the capital city of Adelaide and six in large rural townships. The third section focuses on curriculum and pedagogy in the infant schools, as gleaned from the News, curriculum documents and Longmore’s reports. In so doing, the article highlights women educators’ shared commitments to progressive education (including Montessori’s ideas) and their collective advocacy with parents in the state school system. The final section explores some connections and disconnections with the early years of schooling in contemporary times.

Montessori Early Childhood Education in NZ: Re-discovering the Spirit of Reflection and Inquiry Through Recent Policy Changes

Abstract/Notes: Montessori education arrived in New Zealand (NZ) in the early 1900s for children aged three to six years. Currently it is one of a diverse range of early childhood education options in a sector that has experienced huge policy changes aimed at enhancing quality early childhood provision. This paper positions the growth of Montessori early childhood services within discourses about early childhood quality in NZ and discusses how recent policy changes related to early childhood teaching qualifications, self-review and reflective practice have impacted on Montessori education. It argues that the current Montessori workforce is equipped as never before to reflect critically on the richness of Montessori philosophy and to innovate and experiment with Montessori practice.
