Posted by Media team / Thursday 14 December 2017 / Press release

Responding to the publication of Unlocking Talent, Fulfilling Potential, Action for Children director, Emma Horne, said:

"We welcome the Government’s recognition that too many children from disadvantaged backgrounds are falling behind and the importance of the early years in turning this around. Improving the quality of both early education with a focus on language, and the home learning environment, will go a long way to helping all children get the best start in life.

"Attention must now turn to how these improvements are delivered to children around the country, and we look forward to working with the Government to help them realise their ambition."
