NMT is the leading publication which targets the key decision makers who run, own and manage children’s day nurseries throughout the UK. NMT provides organisations with the ideal opportunity to promote their products and services to the people in nurseries who hold the budgets.

  • A publication which addresses the specific management requirements of senior personnel within nurseries.
  • A vehicle which actively assists companies to promote their goods and services within appropriate editorial content and to a receptive audience.

NMT is published by Hawker Publications Ltd (HPL), a business to business publisher with widespread experience in publishing in the care, beauty and nursery sectors. NMT has a very experienced team and is committed to publishing a highly authoritative, informative and well designed magazine.
