Disadvantage in the early years


The House of Commons Education Committee has published a report on tackling disadvantage in the early years. The report, which focuses on early years education and the home learning environment, calls on the Government to take actions including: adopt the Greater Manchester model of regular child development assessments and interventions where necessary for 0- to 5-year-olds; commission research on interventions aimed at supporting parents and families to create a positive home learning environment; and develop a wider strategy for the provision of early years services.
