The Education Committee has opened a Life Chances inquiry to understand the impact that early years education and social policy have on determining children’s life chances.
The deadline for submissions is Friday 1 June 2018.
The Committee will examine the Government’s current policies in education and social policy and make recommendations to promote social justice.
The inquiry will focus on early years educational settings but will also consider the role of other services, including health services and services provided by the Department for Work and Pensions.
The Committee invites written evidence on:
- The role of quality early years education in determining life chances and promoting social justice
- The importance of support for parents and families, and integration with other services, in prevention and early intervention; and
- The importance of communication skills and language development.
