This book is a qualitative case study which examines the teaching practices, inspired by the Pikler approach and RIE philosophy, in one infant and toddler center in a main city of New Zealand. Specifically the practices studies were primary care-giving, freedom of movement and respect for infants' confidence and competence. Recommendations for practitioners are made at the conclusion of this book. Data were collected through non-participant observations, semi-structured interviews with teachers, a focus group interview with parents, and collation and analysis of relevant documentation. The framework for data interpretation and analysis was based on a thematic coding of observations and interview data.
