The 7 August issue of Nursery World looks at different aspects of creativity – we see how one nursery used a churchyard garden and a visual artist for a creative project on making memories, and find out how another setting is supporting musicality and communication with a visiting musician. Our series on parenting programmes discovers the benefits of Parents as First Teachers, and an extract from a new book explores the importance of physical development to learning. There’s also a selection of the best new picture books for children. In Work Matters, an essential new series on the early years workforce strategy begins with information on the drive to reform Level 2 qualifications, and one nursery operations director explains his summer list of tasks to prepare for the busy term ahead. Training Talk highlights an healthy eating course; our resident employment lawyer answers your questions; and we review the latest professional books. Our regular columnists Michael Pettavel and Natalie Perera have their say. In News, we report on the York 30 hours pilot study, the advice that nurseries are being given to help them be sustainable under 30 hours, and new research into closing the attainment gap.
