I've Had An Article Published

I know Sir Richard Bowlby supports childminders becuase they can form a much closer bond with young children, but not sure if he has researched this or in going on instinct.

Isn't it strange how 'trends' tend to come full circle or it it just me?


I was interested to see you said that some settings are now using 'family groups' rather than grouping children by age.


When I did my NNEB training back in the mid 1970's I was at a residential college which had day and residential children's nurseries. The residential nursery was organised in family groups with each 'family' having bedrooms, bathroom, lounge/diner - it was a real home from home and worked well - looks like it is coming back to be popular strategy :o

Hi, ...very interesting well done, I too would appreciate it if you could point me in the direction of the research.


This is something I try to do in my nursery, after all if children are at home they are not kept in separate rooms just because they are a certain age, they play together and learn from each other.


I look forward to hearing about the research, thank you.
