Practical pre-school....over the last 2 years but have not renewed this time. You get some nice posters and ideas but didn't get time to read everything! But you get a folder to file away bits for future reference.

Nursery World and Practical Preschool. Tended to skip through PP and file stuff never to return to it! NW I like best for the current affairs info and letters page.

Only EYE - like everyone else has said, Practical Prechool is good but I never get time to read it all! I did subscribe to Nursery Education but haven't renewed because I feel that the suggested activities are often too formal for my liking. Another magazine (free) that I enjoy reading is what used to be called the Surestart magazine - as from this month called "Early Years". Always lots of interesting stuff and links in there and it's free! It comes out about four times a year and you can subscribe from this link:

I thoroughly recommend that one! :o

I have NW although in the last few months - since it changed format I don't really find it very inspiring any more - I used to like a quick flick through for ideas, It was simple to read and good for staff training etc.. now it's changed and it's a if it wants to be more like the others - EYE and N ED both of which I like reading for slightly 'deeper' information, but because it [NW] comes out weekly it now seems to get left unread.

My memory is starting to go a bit.....but I'm sure it came one month with the magazine.

Sometimes you get a free binder when you subscribe - but I think then you have to buy them...

 

I get Nursery World (always open it and skim read - can't bear to have magazines unopened!) but then usually I don't go back to it unless I'm looking for something specific I've seen on the initial skim through. Of course then I can never remember which issue it was in! Its good for finding out what is happening in the here and now - and reading the letters page often gets my heart going in a "Daily Mail" sort of way!

 

I get EYE because often articles are in more depth and this particular publication seems to do a better job of referencing so I can always follow up something of interest to get to the original research which is vital for study. It certainly has a more scholarly air about it than any of the other magazines available.

 

I also get Nursery Education because its bright and shiny and a good read.

 

All these are on subscription - so they just arrive on my doorstep.

 

Sometimes I also buy the other one whose name I can't remember - Practical Professional Childcarer or something like that. Its published by Step Forward so its a familiar mix of news, activities etc with pull out sheets that you can file away (although of course I never do). I do like this because it gives a different slant and is often targeted at childminders so you get a different perspective (and the activities are differentiated for older children too so they're useful for Brownies!).

 

All in all I'm a bit of a magazine junkie - might need to review my spending habits for next year!

 

Gosh - I'm glad words are free otherwise I'd be bankrupt by now. Sorry :o
