"This subject profile provides an introduction to services for pre-school children. It updates and expands SB 06/83 published in October 2006. Early Years refers to pre-school education, child health, children‟s social work and childcare. The main policy document – the Early Years Framework covers 0-8 years whereas childcare policy covers 0 – 14 years and policy often makes a distinction between pre-birth, birth to 3, 3 to 4 and school age children. This briefing focuses on 0 to 5 years and so does not cover ante-natal, school services or childcare for school age children except where these are also provided to pre-five children" -- front cover.
