    Default What Publications

    What publications do you get and or find useful in relation to our work.

    I find Nursery World has bits and bobs but obviously they are more focused on Nurseries. I try to get EYEducator and those type of mags too as they often have some great bits in. It would be nice if there was a more Childminder / Home Setting publication.
    The surestart mag is ok too.

    I subscribe to Child Care magazine and Creative steps. I find them both really useful. On occasions I will also buy EYE/ nursery World and the scholastic ones

    I have Child Care on Subscription. This is really good and great for childminders. Also have Practical preschool on sub as well as Creative Steps which is great.

    Child Care and Creative Steps... plus Nursery World but I think I might unsubscribe from that this time...

    When I'm in Borders I sometimes pick up a Scholastic Nursery one as well

    Oh yes! They are perfectly acceptable, allowable expenses!

    If you by creative steps through http://www.craftsuperstore.co.uk/Cra...149/p3598.aspx you get 15% discount...it only works out to one pound something off but every little helps.

    I get Child Care, Creative Steps and of course, Who Minds. I really like Child Care, especially their pull out sheets on EYFS. I'm not so keen on Creative Steps but that could be because I'm not a crafty person. I mean, I have craft items on offer and we do them on a regular basis but I'm not loving it so much I need a whole magazine devoted to it. I do like the way the crafts are linked to ELGs, though.
    Why is "phonics" not spelled the way it sounds?

    Right!! Where am I going wrong ever since I first read this thread I made a point of looking for these magazines but can't locate them anywhere - not even in the big WHSmith in Liverpool City Centre

    Go on, go on, go on ....... give us a clue and tell me where to get any of them from

    Thought I'd try a few then maybe treat myself to a subscription for the one I liked best.

    Creative Steps - you can only get this one on subscription.

    Professional Child Care - Difficult to find...a lot of shops don't stock it. I only ever find it in big WH Smiths but even then not always.......you could always ask your local newsagent to get it in for you each month.

    Nursery World - you should be able to get that in most WH Smith

    Another thought - If I get a subscription can I claim it against my tax
