Essential writings on early childhood development

The Nurturing Care Framework has been included in “The early childhood development reading list”, a “Top 10” list of recent books and reports in the field. Public service network magazine “Apolitical” describes the framework as a “must read” and “(an) evidence-based guide for anyone making policy relating to young children”. As they point out: “Nurturing care is widely considered to be a core part of successful early childhood interventions”.

Also featured on the list is “Early Childhood Matters: Advances in early childhood development” from the Bernard van Leer Foundation, which provides an effective scan of recent thinking in the field, and has a strong focus on nurturing care.
