Decisions are being undertaken at a rapid pace and there is a need for those working in the field of Early Years to consolidate and reflect on their knowledge and practice, building on what they already know.

I found the book absorbing and was particularly interested in the practical solutions to some of the difficult problems nursery teachers encounter. As well as being a fascinating book to read, it is also a valuable reference tool and ideal for planning training sessions in aspects of nursery management, such as policy writing, monitoring quality, providing equal opportunities, planning and assessment. There are useful summa
