This chapter considers how similar and different approaches can be implemented in a variety of ways in diverse contexts. Philosophical understandings influence the policies that are designed and the provision devised. The chapter discusses which factors might influence provision for early years and how ideas that work in particular contexts are shared but changed to fit the needs of different contexts. Issues that are affected by closer global networks are considered, such as safeguarding measures, partnerships with parents and technological advances. A networking and sharing of ideas, leading to a convergence of views, is explored and considered in terms of practical application to the needs of early years settings.
