Comprising six nominations from each of our trade categories, the shortlist features a wide variety of innovative resources – from STEM sets and literacy resources, to CPD packages and picture books, and much more.

You can find a full listing below.

The next stage will see the finalists assessed by a strong expert panel of early years authors, leaders, consultants and educators, amongst them best-selling author Alistair Bryce-Clegg, LEYF CEO June O’Sullivan MBE and Old Station Nursery MD Sarah Steel.

Their verdicts will be unveiled this October in a Teach Early Years digital supplement, which will showcase our five-, four- and three-star winners in each category.

To all those who made nominations, thank you again for taking part – and to our finalists, good luck!
