“Coming from outside the South Australian scene Iris Nesdale writes from a viewpoint that allows us to laugh a little at ourselves whilst valuing the vision, dedication and resourcefulness of infant teachers. As she sets out to present ‘certain aspects of the past, present and continuing design’ of early education, we are indebted to her for bringing into focus successively vivid accounts of the early schools, influential teachers, enlightened administrators, provisions for special populations and the contribution of teacher educators.
In her selection and recording of these aspects of education Iris Nesdale provides the basis and the challenge for further books recording the development of early childhood education.”
