This book fills a research gap, presenting the biographies of six talented men from Britain, Norway, Holland, Switzerland, Israel and the United States who have all been working with the youngest children for many years. A cultural lens is used to understand their motivation and reveal the difficulties they faced in choosing the profession, getting trained, working with young children and their parents, and opting to remain in the field. Their personal narratives will inspire other men to consider the profession and will shed light on society’s influence on cross gendered career pathways. The scholarly analysis of the case studies aims to help early childhood teacher educators to recognize and take account of what male degree candidates in their programs uniquely have to offer.
This book is a must for early childhood leaders who are interested in moving towards gender equality in the workforce. Those responsible for college and university training programs will need this book in order to gain empathy with the men they have recruited, and to learn how to go about making men feel more comfortable in their programs. Supervisors of men in the early childhood workforce will broaden their perspectives on the work lives of these minority employees, and will learn how to support their becoming part of a team consisting largely of women educators. The most significant contribution of this book is the window it gives to readers about men’s unique contribution to the care and education of young children around the world.
