School Readiness

A common theme of many reports and debates this year has been the subject of at what age children should start school, or what sort of provision should be made for young children to prepare them for school. Well now there's another piece of research to add to the literature already out there...

What does School Ready Really Mean? is a new report from the Professional Association for Childcare and Early Years (PACEY). The report's authors spoke to childcare professionals, parents, teachers and children, and concluded that developing social skills is more important than improving the academic ability of very young children.
