Short abstract
The Effective Pre-school, Primary and Secondary Education Project (EPPSE 3-16+), funded by the UK's Government, was Europe's largest longitudinal study to investigate the influence of pre-school on children's later academic and social-behavioural outcomes.  The study ran for 17 years and has provided the research evidence for many national policy changes in England with regard to young children and their families.  

The first of the presentations will focus on the short, medium and long term benefits of high quality pre-school experinces for good child development.  It will also include information on the importance of families to child outcomes.  

The second of the presentations will explore further what is meant by 'high quality' and how it was measured in the study.  This presentations demonstrate the importance of 'mixed method' research in investigating what effective pre-school do, day-to-day, that influences higher outcomes.
