Early Years Development

The evidence is clear that high quality early years education plays a positive role in raising attainment and closing the gap between outcomes for children from disadvantaged backgrounds and other children. EPI research has found that 40 per cent of this gap is already evident by age 5. This research area considers whether current policies are helping to close the attainment gap and aims to provide a robust evidence on which to base  future policies.
