Report that reflects the coalition government’s commitment to continue work on identifying barriers to the uptake of early years provision among the most disadvantaged three and four year olds as an important means of reducing educational and socio-economic inequality (Gove 2010). The study uses data from the 2008 and 2009 surveys in the Childcare and Early Years Survey of Parents series.
Purpose of the review is to consider the original sources on children’s development as well as the critical reviews of these. The focus is on research findings published since 2000 as the ultimate goal was to update, rather than to repeat, the evidence base on which the EYFS was originally based.
Paper to communicate key messages to the Department for Education, the Teaching Agency and to other sector leaders who will support the early education and childcare workforce in the future.
