Nursery World 13 May focuses on young children’s transition to school. Our All About…settling into school – a child’s perspective is written by a team of academics who have listened to children’s views about what they need. And our Parent’ Guide has advice for families on preparing their child to move to school from nursery. We look at one school’s work in tacking its pupils’ mental health and well-being problems with some innovative approaches, and see how one setting created a library especially for two-year-olds. A new series on outdoor practice in Japan starts in this issue. In Work Matters, our Managing Equality and Diversity series explores race and ethnicity; and there’s a guide to the new Level 3 standard, professional book reviews and HR advice. Our guest columnist is Dr Jack P Shonkoff, who argues that science shows why play is so important in early childhood. In News, we report on the Baseline trail results that the DfE is refusing to release, and a new study into early years quality.
