We know that the early years provide the foundation for a child’s future life chances. However, health and educational inequalities among young children persist – across social groups and between children with differing needs.
NCB wants every child to get the best start in life. We work with early years professionals and parents to help them give their young children every opportunity to develop, learn and thrive. We use our knowledge to improve national policy and law so that it puts young children and the quality of early years services first.
