Hello and welcome to the June edition of the Parenta magazine!
We are in June already – which means we’re almost half-way through the year… and the end of this academic year is drawing closer by the week! What better time than now to start getting ready for September before the madness of the holiday season starts? Don’t panic if you’ve not even started thinking about this yet – help is at hand. Turn to page 12 for some top tips we’ve created to help you get organised so that you can be fully prepared for the new term.
June is also the month when we expect to be enjoying some warm weather! The lighter evenings are a welcome return, and the Summer Solstice on 21st – also known as Midsummer’s Day – is the longest day of the year, officially marking the start of summer. Even if the sun doesn’t make an appearance, this is still the perfect time to celebrate everything warm and sunny with the children – and we have some fabulous ideas to help your little ones celebrate the beginning of what we hope will be a lovely summer for everyone.
Inside this month’s issue, guest author, Tamsin Grimmer, gives her valuable advice on meaningful connections and explores a loving pedagogy in her new book, “Developing a Loving Pedagogy in the Early Years: How Love Fits with Professional Practice”. We are very lucky to have three copies of this insightful book to give away – turn to page 14 for details. Once again, we have a packed edition and our industry experts cover many hot topics, including tantrums, drowning prevention, dyslexia and dyscalculia, teaching children the meaning of ‘sorry’, and so much more!
As always, all the advice and guidance in our magazine is written to help you with the efficient running of your setting and to promote the health, happiness and wellbeing of the children in your care.
Please feel free to share the magazine with friends, parents and colleagues – they can sign up to receive their own copy here!
Please stay safe, everyone.
