Reading professional publications for Early Years

Last Friday, we had a very good session with the first year of 2+2 Early Years. We shared what publications/resources we read in order to develop our knowledge, stay in touch with the profession and get a competitive advantage (e.g. in developing the career). That's what we read, watch, listen and subscribe to:

There was a general feeling that the patters of reading and information discovery have changed since the beginning of the course (and it was only four weeks ago!), e.g. more time is spent on reading quality texts and quality newspapers; more documentaries and topical TV programmes are watched; however, reading and watching TV for pleasure is also present as good professionals have to stay in touch with reality in its diversity, as well as being able to retreat - when necessary - into comforting books and TV.

Sounds fantastic!
