Young Children's Voices Network

Ycvn _new

The Young Children's Voices Network supported local authorities nationally in developing good practice in listening to young children, so that young children's views may inform policy and improve early childhood services. The network was government-funded and based at ECU from 2006 to 2011. ECU continues to provide listening to young children resources and training as well as consultancy to help you set up a local YCVN or to further embed listening practice in your area.

The NCB Research Centre undertook an evaluation of YCVN in 2011, resulting in the report Putting listening practice at the heart of early years practice: an evaluation of the Young Children's Voices Network.
