2014 promises to be another action-packed year, and we've got plenty of great content planned for the next 12 months.
Some of our favourite authors will be contributing features to inform and advise early years practitioners – Helen Tovey on risk; Marion Dowling on vulnerable children; Nancy Stewart on children as storytellers; and Julie Mountain with a new series on outdoor provision using the 7Cs approach.
New names will include Birkbeck's Natasha Kirkham on the importance of boredom, and Dr Jo Van Herwegen with a two-part series on mathematics.
We're also starting a new poster series on materials, including glass, stone and plastic, starting with wool on 13 January.
