A Message from Lord Pickles and Lord Blunkett, followed by Apple Tree Day Nursery’s best practice article
With economic and political uncertainty sweeping across the United Kingdom, and indeed much of the world, one consistent bulwark of fact and intelligence can be relied upon. The Parliamentary Review returns for its fifth year in publication, covering the salient and significant events of the year in Westminster. Bringing together industry leaders, senior politicians and world-class journalists, The Review remains the go-to publication for those who want to know what is happening throughout the country.
Founded in 2002, Apple Tree Day Nursery is a private nursery providing care and education for children aged three months to five years. Head of Nursery Lesley Thompson and Head of Finance Rick Thompson expand on their “outstanding” success in this year’s Review. Head of Nursery Lesley Thompson said “We are delighted to be part of the Parliamentary Review and for our practice to be recognised in this way. It also values the staff teams across both settings and the outstanding contribution they make.”
We discuss early years mental health worries, nursery costs and vocational qualifications in this inaugural Early Years Education edition, where experienced providers weigh in alongside Prime Minster Theresa May and Leader of the House of Commons, Andrea Leadsom.
Recently appointed co-chairman of The Parliamentary Review Lord Blunkett looks forward to the upcoming edition, commentating that the “importance of the Review to the wider business community is self-evident. The understanding of and ability to be able to relate to the political arena has never been more vital.”
Writing in The Review, the prime minister says that “British politics provides ample material for analysis in the pages of The Parliamentary Review.”
