Sure Start is Good for Children

Do you work in a Sure Start centre, or does your child attend one? If so, it seems that you can give yourself a pat on the back; according to a new report out today, children who attend Sure Start Centres are more likely to exhibit positive social behaviour and greater independence.

However, the researchers behind the project have suggested that the effects noted were relatively modest; among other findings was the fact that children living in Sure Start-supported areas were more likely to have been immunised. You can read the full text of The Impact of Sure Start Local Programmes on Three Year Olds and Their Families online, or a summary version is also available.
