Our experts cover areas including finance, insurance and tax, offering advice on topics like how to minimise costs and make the most of your resources.

Our Manager’s Helpline pages are guided by readers’ requests. We bring in the right experts for the topics to answer your questions.

Management advice covers many difficult of subjects in an easy-to-understand and entertaining manner.

In our Sector Viewpoint section, leading early years organisations share their views on hot topics in the sector.

Past issues have put the spotlight on topics as diverse as nutrition and recruiting through social media, and if you want to sound off about anything we have the ideal vehicle for it in our Soapbox and Nursery Talk features.

It is always useful to get the views of successful people in our sector. So, we have regular interviews with key players like Purnima Tanuku, chief executive NDNA and Neil Leitch, chief executive of the Pre-school Learning Alliance, or the winners of our National and Scottish NMT Nursery Awards.

We hope that existing readers will continue to enjoy their regular copy of NMT and that new subscribers will find NMT an invaluable and entertaining publication.
