Welcome, this week meet Bobbi Wheeler 2014 Child Care Director of the Year (Australian Family Early Childhood Education and Care Awards) and learn about a new tool kit designed to improve access to early childhood research so providers can take advantage of this information more easily
Early years toolkit
Parents who are actively involved in their child's learning and development before they start school can boost their progress by 5 months, according to evidence summarised in the Early Years Toolkit, a new resource launched by the British Education Endowment Foundation (EEF).

The tool kit was developed by a team at Durham University and Professor of Education Steve Higgins said the tool kit was written to improve access to important information for early childhood professionals.

"We think evidence can help early years professionals with the important decisions they make every day, but know that it is often locked away in journals, or written in inaccessible jargon. We hope that the Early Years Toolkit helps bridge the divide between research and practice and leads to more effective early years provision for all children."

The tool kit covers 12 topics and summarises research from more than 1600 studies including a summary of evidence designed to help early childhood providers maximise their resources and improve the learning and development of three and four year olds from disadvantaged backgrounds.
