The "culture of danger," as in child-proofing homes, daycare facilities, and outside play areas, has touched every aspect of early childhood education. How can one go about playing in backyards and play areas when one lives near bears, moose, and coyotes? It is all about acquiring knowledge of wildlife behavior and discovering the special capabilities of very young children.

Resource

The International Journal of Early Childhood Environmental Education (IJECEE) is a peer-reviewed open-access electronic journal promoting early childhood environmental education for global readership and action. IJECEE publishes scholarly written work, anonymously and expertly reviewed by peers, that focuses on book reviews, educational approaches, evaluation models, program descriptions, research investigations, and theoretical perspectives pertinent to the education of all young children (birth to eight years). The young children’s caregivers and the communities, institutions and systems, in which the children live, too, are a focus of importance. The content of the publication addresses all aspects of environmental education as well as all reciprocal associations and impacts embedded within the environmental education experience. Implications for policy at the local, state, regional, national, and international levels are sought.
