A home away from home - what does this look and feel like?

"A home away from home". 

It's a description of ECE settings that is bandied about so often that its true meaning tends to be overlooked.  It is not enough to use the phrase as a selling point for parents.  We need to think about what home means to a very young child, and find genuine ways of offering a homely, nurturing safe haven.
