Not Just a Nursery
Looking at the work of ten early years centres, from family centres, combined nursery centres and purpose-built centres, to those serving rural and urban communities, this book assesses the range of services they offer, including parent support, early education for babies and toddlers, adult education, nursery schooling and day care. In concluding that such centres are not only life-enhancing for parents and children, but prevent expensive educational, social and parenting failure, Not Just a Nursery started the thinking around the establishment of children’s centre’s in the UK.It will be invaluable reading for managers and policy makers concerned with education, health and social services, as well as those concerned with the early years, such as nursery professionals, primary head teachers, health visitors and social workers.
