Rusty Keeler on Risky Play and Natural Playscape Design
In this interview, we discuss the concept of risky play and the benefits for the children. Rusty explains how practitioners and educators can expand their own comfort zones and the role that the environment plays in this. Of course, as a natural playscape designer, we also discuss the elements of good design, whatever the size or location of your setting, and what inspires Rusty's own designs.
Debbie Garvey on Self-Reflection
In this interview we discuss the importance of reflective practice (and why it should be more than just something you studied at college) and the different types of reflective practice. Debbie has some great ideas and strategies for including reflective practice as part of your daily work, without distracting from the children, even if you're a childminder or home-based.
Edwin Lampert on the Brun Bear Foundation
Edwin Lampert is the founder of The Brun Bear Foundation and author of the two children’s books starring Brunhilfer and Brunfin – The Flood and Trouble at the Zoo. In this interview, we discuss the types of messages these two books convey and how they can be used in Early Years settings to support children.
Dr Tina Payne Bryson on The Bottom Line for Baby
In this interview, we discuss Dr Bryson's new book - The Bottom Line for Baby – which is based on her research and extensive knowledge. We explore some of the things parents get judged for, but that science actually says are fine, as well as some of those myths most parents believe that the science says we shouldn’t believe. It was also an ideal opportunity to get some tips and strategies for those times when parents and carers may not be on the same page when it comes to some of the decisions you may have to make about babies.
Sonia Mainstone-Cotton on Children’s Social, Emotional and Mental Health needs
In this interview, we discuss how children's mental health has been changing and how we should respond to that as Early Years practitioners, educators and teachers. As usual, Sonia has a lot of great ideas and advice, based on her own experience and work.
Premium Bonus: Louise Mercieca on Nutrition and Autism
In this Premium Bonus video, nutritional therapist, Louise Mercieca, details some of the challenges that children with Autism may have with food and nutrition.
