Abstract

The evidence is compelling regarding the importance of early years and childhood experiences for healthy development and for health and wellbeing throughout an individual’s life course. It is widely agreed that early experiences are affected by a number of complex and interrelated factors including social and material circumstances; maternal physical and mental health; and family/household structure and function.

This qualitative research explores the ways in which parents, carers and staff experienced a ‘nurture’ approach developed in nursery settings in Glasgow, and their perspectives on the impact that this approach has had on the wellbeing and development of young children and family engagement in learning
