Parenta Magazine

Every month we bring together a collection of articles relating to the childcare industry, utilising experts in the form of our guest authors who provide an insight into their specialist topics. Give it a read, share it with colleagues and friends. We hope you enjoy it.

Hello and welcome to the August edition of the Parenta magazine!

As we look ahead to another few weeks of (unusually!) good weather before the new Autumn term, we are continuing our summer-themed advice this month with more sun safety tips for practitioners and parents, including what to do in the event of sun stroke and heat exhaustion, both of which we have seen happen this year in these exceptional temperatures. We have more no-cost holiday activities which you can also share with parents, and Frances Turnbull continues her outdoor early years music ideas which will have the children (and staff alike) singing at the top of their voices!

A topic that we cover regularly in Parenta magazine is safeguarding and this month, we focus on the sensitive topic of supporting our colleagues should they need to disclose a form of abuse. This can be a difficult time for all those involved, so we have set out a number of steps which you can do to help support those colleagues.

We have a packed edition for you this month, with so many articles from our industry experts: Joanna Grace concludes her series of 10 ‘Egg-cellent Advice’ articles and explores neurodivergent communication using our faces, Sandra Duncan shows us how we can improve the children’s view, through effective wayfinding in the setting, and in a similar vein, Gina Bale gives us some great insight into children’s spatial awareness. Mona Sakr continues her series – looking at how baby room leaders can use their leadership skills best, Helen Lumgair explores the interconnection between storytelling and empathy and continuing with that theme, Kathryn Peckham looks at how we can help children connect with and manage their emotions.

Everything you read in the magazine is written to help with the efficient running of your setting, and to promote the health, happiness and well-being 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.
