  • Survey of Early Years Support for Disadvantaged Children

    This is an important new research project which builds on the information gathered in the Survey of Childcare and Early Years Provision 2019. It will provide the Department of Education (DfE) with crucial information about the use of and access to funding and support for disadvantaged pre-school children, the home learning environment and food provision in the early years sector in England. Results from this research will help to identify gaps and inform future policy. This is your chance to have your say about your experience of early years support and funding for disadvantaged children. The research is being carried out by the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) and Frontier Economics on behalf of the Department for Education.

    • Toddlers playing with sand Why take part?

      This is a time of significant policy change within the childcare and early years sector. It’s really important that we hear from a wide range of settings so that this research can demonstrate how changes are affecting different types of providers.

      The results of this important research will be made publically available – so the findings won’t just be useful to the Department for Education.

      Taking part is voluntary but we hope that you will take this opportunity to contribute to this important study.
