This briefing paper summarises the findings of qualitative primary research which explored parent/carer and practitioner perspectives on ‘nurture’ approaches to preschool provision in Glasgow City during the spring of 2014. There is a strong sense of enthusiasm for the nurture approach and satisfaction in the outcomes that it achieves for children. Children can be supported to overcome language and communication difficulties, develop appropriate social skills and begin to regulate their own behaviour and emotions. It is less clear whether the associated aim of supporting family engagement in learning is achieved.
