Anna Freud was a pioneer in nursery education and child mental health. Building on her work, the papers in this book consider the educational, psychological and emotional factors which enter into the experience of nursery education. They examine the impact of nursery education and make a plea for a unified understanding of child development which appreciates the pleasures and fears of children as much as their cognitive performance. Contributors include Anne-Marie Sandler, and Adam Phillips.
