Listen to a video introduction from the editor on this month's issue below.


This month’s writers focus on the wider issues within the early years sector; addressing funding needs, trauma informed transitions and the discourse around inclusive practice.


We hear from early years teacher, Emma Davis, on what it means to have a setting ethos.


Amongst the changes in the sector there has been a lot of discussion surrounding children leading the curriculum. John Siraj-Blatchford and Lynnette Brock encourage a reflection on the value of observing children’s self-chosen free play.


Rebecca Martland discusses the influence of attachments and considering the role of trauma when supporting children settling in during the current circumstances.


Sue Cowley reflects back on the past year’s events surrounding race and inclusion. Offering reflections and suggestions on how to create more inclusive practice across the sector, from avoiding tokenism to starting the conversation around race in the early years.
