Early Days Magazine
Early Days magazine is published three times a year to provide information, inspiration, training and connection for those working with early years children.
It is written by authors from several countries who embrace a Christian perspective and provides a forum for serious and practical reflection on some of the key issues relevant to those who work with 0-5 year olds today.
Current Issue: “Supporting Special Needs”
Highlighted Article: “A Voice of Experience From The Forest” by Jo Gilks
I sometimes hear people say that Forest School and nature cure autism. It does not. Nevertheless, many of the environmental conditions such as noise, colour, artificial lighting and crowds, which can cause an overload of senses, are not present in the woods. Or if they are, there is the space to move away from them before the senses become overloaded.
Therefore children seem calmer, and many of the coping behaviours observed in children who are feeling overloaded are not needed, or are needed less often.
