In 2008, we set out 10 overlapping elements that need to come together to deliver the vision and a radical improvement in outcomes. We believe these elements still have currency and should underpin the work we will do on the EYC:
Working together to improve outcomes for children and families
Helping children, families and communities to secure outcomes for themselves
Breaking cycles of poverty, inequality and poor outcomes in and through early years
A focus on engagement and empowerment of children, families and communities
Using the strength of universal services to deliver prevention and early intervention
Putting quality at the heart of service delivery
Services that meet the needs of children and families
Improving outcomes and children's quality of life through play
Simplifying and streamlining delivery
Working together on services across the early years
