Supporting Delivery of an Integrated Early Years System

Project status Completed

Improving outcomes through early years interventions is a priority area of the Welsh Government’s national strategy, Prosperity for All. The development of a more integrated early years system in Wales is seen as a key enabler to achieving better outcomes, in order to achieve greater impact within current resources.

In this assignment, we commissioned a review of the international evidence on early years systems with the aim of identifying what works and what doesn’t, and highlighting the policy choices inherent in different system designs.
