This is the seventh of a series of eight discussions on principles, processes, and strategies involved in early childhood education, including environmental education. There is cultural capital in education and there is biophilia capital in education to the environment in early childhood. The habitus represents a child's environment with everything in it and this is where the genesis of child development lies.

The International Journal of Early Childhood Environmental Education (IJECEE) is a peer-reviewed open-access electronic journal promoting early childhood environmental education for global readership and action. IJECEE publishes scholarly written work, anonymously and expertly reviewed by peers, that focuses on book reviews, educational approaches, evaluation models, program descriptions, research investigations, and theoretical perspectives pertinent to the education of all young children (birth to eight years). The young children’s caregivers and the communities, institutions and systems, in which the children live, too, are a focus of importance. The content of the publication addresses all aspects of environmental education as well as all reciprocal associations and impacts embedded within the environmental education experience. Implications for policy at the local, state, regional, national, and international levels are sought.
