Nursery World’s April issue is packed with advice and information on new directions. Our major series on the revised EYFS Areas of Learning focuses on Personal, Social and Emotional Development with Anne O’Connor, while Eunice Lumsden, Peter Moss and Claire Cameron give their perspectives on the need to rethink early childhood services. Our Essential Resources series has great ideas for exploring minibeasts; there’s a look at one nursery school’s core experiences curriculum; and we report on how relationships with parents have been strengthened during lockdown. In Health & Nutrition, one nursery groups explains why it moved to a plant-based diet for its children; and Kerry Payne shows how to embrace neurodiversity. In our Activities section, there’s a project on paper-making; your outdoor calendar for April; crawling activities for birth to threes; and M is for…meaningful maths. In Management, the Alliance has advice on making funding work; it’s part 4 of our outdoor CPD series; and we feature an online course on digital play. Children and Families Minister Vicky Ford writes an exclusive opinion piece for us, and we interview Bright Horizons new early childhood director.
