Ministers in England persist in seeing the early years as a preparation for school rather than a vitally important stage in its own right. This period of life is when children establish the values and mindsets that underpin their sense of self, their attitude to later learning, and their communicative skills and natural creativity. Inappropriate interventions at this stage can cause profound damage to the self-image and learning dispositions of the child and we support the Save Childhood Movement in challenging any government policies that threaten the wellbeing and potential of young children.
