Child Protection in the Early Years: Dr Eunice Lumsden is Finalist in national awards

Date 10.07.2018

Congratulations to Dr Eunice Lumsden, whose book, Child Protection in the Early Years, is a finalist in the Nursery World Awards 2018.

Dr Eunice Lumsden said: “I’m absolutely thrilled and honoured to be nominated for this award, not just for me but for all the children and families whose stories permeate every page of this book.  Their experiences provide clear messages about the need for a highly trained early childhood workforce.  One of the biggest challenges facing our sector is how best to protect the children we work with from all types of harm and provide the right environments that promote their holistic development.

“I hope that my book enables those engaging with it to understand the nuances of supporting children at risk of harm, supporting them as they act as powerful advocates for infants and young children, and developing their understanding of the cause of harm and how best to respond in each individual case – we can and must do better.”

Eunice and the other finalists must now wait until the Awards evening on 22 September, when the winners will be revealed.
