Evaluation of the Two-Year-Olds Pilot

The Two Year Old Pilot extends this government initiative to offering part time early education to 12,000 disadvantaged 2 year olds.

There are many parts to the Evaluation including the implementation of the pilot scheme by local authorities and early years settings, exploring the views of parents and assessing the children’s cognitive and socio-emotional development before and after participation. The University of Oxford is working specifically on the quality assessments which are being carried out in 75 of the settings offering the free places.
