Last July, we announced that several SAGE and Learning Matters titles were shortlisted for the 2013 Nursery World Awards!
- Exploring Play for Early Childhood Studies By Mandy Andrews
- Language and Literacy for the Early Years By Sally Neaum
- Learning Stories By Margaret Carr & Wendy Lee
- The Reflective Early Years Practitioner By Elaine Hallet
- Understanding Schemas and Young Children By Frances Atherton & Cathy Nutbrown
The awards ceremony took place on September 28 in London and the night was dedicated to highlight the most dedicated and innovative works in early childhood education in the UK. SAGE is excited to announce that Mandy Andrews’ book has won the award under the category of staff resources! We are extremely happy to see her work get the recognition it deserves.
In addition, Cathy Nutbrown received a lifetime achievement award at this event. Cathy has written several books for SAGE and also serves as Editor in Chief for a SAGE journal, Journal of Early Childhood Research. We are very proud to be able to publish Cathy’s works and her colleagues are delighted that she has been recognized for her accomplishments.
“Cathy is an inspiring but always modest teacher (she was nominated by her university students as ‘inspirational’),” wrote Professor Peter Clough, “and one keen to ‘bring on’ the next generations of teachers, researchers and policy makers.”
We were delighted to see so many practitioners recognized for their achievements and having the opportunity to celebrate the fantastic work they do every day. It was also great to see so many trainees recognized as outstanding students and future practitioners. Here at SAGE, we believe highly in the value of education and work hard to provide quality resources for the education industry. These awards represent the dedication and passion our authors have for their work and how they contribute to early childhood education. Thank you to Nursery World for organizing such a beautiful event and congratulations to both Mandy and Cathy for their outstanding work.
