The Practical Pre-school Awards is the awards scheme for infant, pre-school and early years products, whilst the Primary Teacher Update awards programme offers broader exposure, covering products relevant to children from 5-11 years of age.
All entries are tested by childcare professionals and the children they work with. Achieving a Practical Pre-school or Primary Teacher Update Award provides an opportunity to highlight new products within the pre-school, primary school and childcare industries, whilst also receiving official endorsement from the end users.
As always, the results will be published in Practical Pre-School magazine and online in October, with the Primary Teacher Update Awards set to receive extra coverage in Primary Teacher Update magazine.
The award categories include Toys and Games, Outdoor Toys and Creative Play, as well as Books and Publications, Teacher Resources and Equipment, Music and Multimedia, Childcare, Modern Foreign Languages and Electronic and New Technology.
