Dr. Peter Moss is an Emeritus Professor of Early Childhood Provision at the Institute of Education University of London and a researcher at the Institute’s Thomas Coram Research Unit. He has broad research interests including services for children; the workforce in childcare institutions, and the development of democratic practices in them; gender specifics in work with children; and the relationship between employment and care, with attention to leave policy.
Much of his research has been cross-national, particularly in Europe. He was coordinator of the European Commission’s Childcare Network between 1986 and 1996. Currently, he edits Children in Europe, an international magazine published in 14 countries and 12 languages. He is also interested in social pedagogy and radical education. An exclusive contribution of Prof. Moss is the development of the “Mosaic Approach” (with Dr. Alison Clark) and the popularization of “listening to children” concept.
