CREC student Research Papers Archive

With the agreement of the authors, the following papers have been made openly available for other early years practitioners and researchers to access and, hopefully, use to inform their own practice and academic study.

We kindly ask that ANY use of these research papers is correctly attributed. 

We intend to add to this archive over time as other high-quality practitioner research is completed by our students.

Each assignment has been made available free to access and download as a PDF file and contains a useful summary and keywords section to help you find research relevant to your interests.    

To help you to identify research of interest we have created an indexed summary table of keywords here.

We hope that you find this archive of practitioner research useful, interesting and enlightening and helps to support and develop your own work and studies.
