Why is early education important?

Research highlights the important role of parents and the importance of high-quality early education in supporting children's learning and development. The foundation years (pregnancy to age five) are critical to children's life chances and most children who are developing well at the end of their foundation years go on to achieve well in school.


What funding is available?

We have received government funding for children with the greatest needs:

  • from September 2014 the number of eligible children will increase to 40% of two-year-olds
