Learning to Learn
The Department issued its revised Early Years strategy – Learning to Learn - for consultation in December 2012. The strategy includes proposals for: a review of Sure Start; the extension of the Foundation Stage to include a non-compulsory year; the development of Early Years Education Clusters; piloting of different staff to children ratios; and limits on new full time provision. The Department’s consultation document can be found here.
The Committee for Education reviewed the strategy; sought evidence from stakeholders; and responded to the Department setting out its views. The feedback from stakeholders can be found here and the Committee’s response to the Department can be found here.”
