ADR Wales has released its latest publication analysing the Welsh Government’s Flying Start programme which helps families with children under four years old in disadvantaged areas of Wales.
The report used linked anonymised data from the Flying Start programme together with data on the outcomes of the Foundation Phase baseline assessments to consider the potential relationships between these outcomes and the take-up of and attendance of Flying Start childcare.
Flying Start is a Welsh Government programme to provide a range of services to help families with children under four years old in disadvantaged areas of Wales. Help available includes:
- Part-time childcare for two- to three-year-olds;
- An enhanced Health Visiting service;
- Access to parenting programmes;
- Support for children to learn to talk and communicate
Situated under ADR Wales’ Early Years body of work, this analysis is one of a number of pieces of work that ADR Wales is carrying out to evaluate flagship Welsh Government programmes with the aim of providing a basis for creating evidence based policies to enhance the lives of people in Wales.
