Our Early Learning Communities programme aims to improve early learning outcomes for children growing up in poverty in the UK.
It builds on the evidence base and knowledge of local services, organisations and families in four communities in England and Wales: Feltham (West London), Margate, Newport and Sheffield. In these communities we’re exploring how working together through a whole system approach can fundamentally change the way children living in poverty are supported to learn and develop.
We teamed up with Dartington Service Design Lab and partners who carried out an Evidence Review and produced a Toolkit that guides our Early Learning Communities approach. These resources have been used to develop local plans that make sure children growing up in these areas can achieve their full potential.
To make sure all children in the UK have the same chance at a brighter future, we’ve made these resources available to all who share our goal for children. Whether you’re an early years professional, part of a community service or organisation that supports children or a local authority, you can find out more and download our Early Learning Community resources here.
