Editor's view - A top class read
Monday, January 25, 2016
At Nursery World, we always strive to provide a mix of content that will meet the needs of everyone in the early years community.
Supplements are one way that we can offer extra information and advice for particular groups of readers, for example Nursery Management for those running early years settings and Nursery Equipment for those wanting to know more about the best equipment and resources to buy.
So with schools opening their doors much more to younger children, such as under the disadvantaged two-year-olds programme, and striving to resolve the tensions of the EYFS in Reception, we have published a great new supplement Early Years in School with this issue of the magazine.
This recognises the particular challenges of supporting the youngest children in schools, and contains in-depth guidance from top experts such as Dame Alison Peacock, Anna Ephgrave of Carterhatch, Elaine Bennett, Jan Dubiel, Julia Manning-Morton and Helen Moylett on providing the very best environment for learning and development.
It’s a brilliant read, and not just for school practitioners. After all, the principles of play-based practice apply in every early years setting. But with the separate Ofsted judgement for the EYFS in schools restored, this supplement is particularly timely and useful for this part of the sector.
We’ve also got our ‘Early years provision in schools’ Masterclass at the Nursery World Show on 5 February, led by Professor Tina Bruce and Dr Julian Grenier. Tickets are available at www.nurseryworldshow.com. The Show will be a fantastic two-day event, so we hope to see you there.
