An equal start: improving outcomes in children's centres - the evidence review

Evidence review that identifies the most important outcomes children’s centres should be striving for in order to give all children positive early-years experiences.

It draws together the best academic evidence, the views of practitioners and parents, and the work that government continues to take forward around the early years. It recognises the value of many of the existing national and local frameworks.

The project adds to the debate by drawing those together and emphasises the need to focus on supporting good parenting and the environment in which parents live and work.
