In this interview with Guardian's general manager for new centres, Megan Black, we learn how she made the switch from law to early childhood and what she sees as the challenges and opportunities for the early childhood sector in the years to come.
The power of puzzle play
Educators have always understood the value of jigsaw puzzles as an enriching playtime activity. Now, new research has shown that children understand that individual pieces, when assembled, produce a picture around the age of four years.

Published in the Society for Research in Child Development, the study looked at the cognitive processes underlying jigsaw puzzle completion, finding the average child is able to use visual cues from puzzle pieces and the box to complete a puzzle at around the age of four. Three-year-old children use trial and error to put the pieces together.
