All the articles from IJNE Volume 2

It is a pleasure to welcome you to our second annual issue of the International Journal of Nurture in Education. In this second issue we are covering a range of topics that have particular implications for whole school or whole institution nurture. In addition many of them report on innovative practice. In addition the Foreword, written by one of the first nurture group practitioners Sylvia Lucas, recalls the early days of nurture groups and reminds us of the principles on which they were and are based.
