Learning from sure start: working with young children and their families: Working with Young Children and their Families Summary


"...an easy-to-read evaluation of a trailblazer local programme... packed with helpful information such as pointers for the future, pie charts and parents' stories (not translated into dry 'research' speak)... It renewed my passion and reminded me why I got involved in Sure Start in the first place" Nursery World "This book demonstrates the key strength of Sure Start, its breadth of vision... It shows how with the right effort, statutory and voluntary organisations can work side by side. It also shows how important it is to engage local people in finding solutions, blending professional and community support to strengthen both... Learning from Sure Start is a significant contribution to the evidence base on what works for young children and families."Naomi Eisenstadt, Director, Sure Start Unit Sure Start, an exciting initiative in early childhood care and education with families in the UK, has been developing new forms of community-focused early interventions, with the aim of having all children `ready to flourish' when they start school.
