It is widely acknowledged that family factors have a decisive impact on children's opportunities in life. Following its landslide victory in 1997, New Labour initiated Sure Start, a cross-departmental programme intended to combat child poverty and social inequality by providing comprehensive family-centred services to children in pre-school age and their families. First evidence, however, points to significant difficulties in reaching minority ethnic families. This paper seeks to explore conditions for engaging effectively with minority ethnic families in Sure Start Children's Centres. Effective engagement is defined as provision which is accessible to as well as inclusive of users and has positive outcomes measured against policy, practitioner and user objectives. Given the significant diversity of ethnic groups and limitations of previous research, existing evidence on ethnicity and Early Years provision is complemented by findings of a case study on the experience of Somali parents in a South London Community. It will be argued that Children's Centres' potential for effective engagement can be enhanced through a) considering individual/ethno-specific factors as well as regulatory and physical contexts in service design; b) well-trained staff and adequate resourcing; and c) actively involving parents in service planning, delivery and evaluation. It will also be suggested that the ability to offer inclusive services is constrained by systemic tensions arising from the rapid expansion of service provision and the underlying target and performance management model.

'This book is a gem! It sets out in a very straightforward and comprehensible way the vast framework of policy which shapes the nature of early years services in the UK today....This book should be on the reading list of all early years practitioners, multi-agency professionals and students as a timely reminder of the context in which they work' - Early Years Update 'This is a fabulous resource, with helpful and practical hints, tips and downloadable electronic resources....A truly invaluable resource for leaders and managers in any early years setting, or for those who are responsible for training members of the children's workforce' - Early Years Educator 'This is an excellent and accessible text which is useful to both practitioners and students. It clearly outlines developments in early years policy in recent years, placing it in its political and social context. The inclusion of policy developments in Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales in this latest edition gives a new and broader perspective of policy in the United Kingdom than previously available in a single text. Students studying the topic at degree level will find the framework for analyzing the impact of policy particularly enlightening' - Sue O'Neill, Award Director FdA Management of Childcare Provision, Liverpool Hope University 'I predict that this book will quickly find a place on the book lists of colleges and universities around the country' - ESCalate 'This book is excellent. It is very easy to read and it starts with the basics, before allowing the reader to be more reflective' - Michelle Smith, BA (Hons) Early Childhood Studies and Early Years PGCE Covering the latest developments in early years policy, this book explores the processes of how policy is made, implemented, analysed and developed over time. It provides a complete overview of early years policy and evaluates its impact on practice, and it facilitates discussion and critical thinking around policy issues and policy development with the inclusion throughout the book of case studies, points for reflection and activities. There is suggested further reading and a short summary at the end of each chapter, and useful websites are cited. This second edition of a respected book has been substantially revised to include: - a new chapter on policy across England, Scotland, Wales & Northern Ireland - discussion of the new Early Years Foundation Stage - recent developments in Special Educational Needs - a revised and updated timeline of early years legislation - new case studies, covering the Birth to Eight age range - a revised and updated Glossary Suitable for all early years students at all levels, and early years practitioners at any stage of their career, this book is a must-have for navigating the minefield of early years legislation.

This publication takes as its background the radical reforms that have taken place in the field of services for children following the passing of the Children Act of 2004 and the subsequent Government white paper, Every Child Matters: Change for children. It argues that the fundamental requirements for leadership for learning in the early years should be provided by considering social contexts, adopting a commitment to collective working and focusing on improving children’s learning outcomes. Effective Leadership in the Early Years Sector is based on the analysis of a wide range of literature on leadership in the early years and is simultaneously grounded in information taken from effective early years settings, as identified in studies funded by the Department for Education and Skills. It identifies a range of ‘categories of effective leadership practice’ in the effective settings that will be valuable in the development of leadership training.
