Scottish Nursery Staff Told Not to Say ‘Boys and Girls’


(The Christian Institute) Nursery staff in Scotland have been told not to call children “boys” and “girls.”

The guidance from the Care Inspectorate also cautions against using words such as “manmade” and “mankind,” and urges staff to change story characters such as Mr. Squirrel to “squirrel.”

Critics have called the guidance “patronizing” and “out of control.”

The Inspectorate urges nursery staff to “retell nursery rhymes or fairy tales in a more gender-equal manner” and not to greet children with the phrase “Hello, boys and girls.”
