Childcare Professional magazine
Childcare Professional is PACEY's official award-winning membership magazine, keeping childminder, nanny and nursery worker members across England and Wales up-to-date with the latest news, campaigns, ideas and innovations in childcare and early years.
The Covid cohort
In this issue we examine the impact of lockdowns on pandemic-born children’s development and offer some ways practitioner can help them. We tackle loneliness and in response launch a new Facebook group Early Years Huddle. We explore pedagogy and why approaches should be based around children, not just what looks good on social media. There are many benefits to having pets in domestic childcare settings, our Animal magic article ensure you are aware of the risks and stay safe.

Other features include:
One-to-one with Professor Sam Wass – We speak to child psychologist, neuroscientist, and experts from Channel 4’s ‘The secret life of…’ series about making childcare setting feel just right.
Their own world – We explore the first two stages of US researcher Mildred Parten’s six stages of play.
Harmful practices – Although it’s a sensitive subject, practitioners suspecting child abuse linked to faith or belief including witchcraft should raise the alarm around their concerns.
Let’s go potty – Research shows we need to reframe our approach and se potty training as a process, not an event. Alina Lynden from ERIC explains.
Pursuing dreams - We sit down with Shanti Flynn, Head of Education at nursery group Storal and PACEY Trustee, to talk about realising her career dreams, building decades of sector experience and staying motivated.
