Publisher: Melbourne, Vic. Centre for Community Child Health Royal Children's Hospital, Melbourne 2008Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: June 2006 Prepared for The R.E. Ross TrustSummary: There is clear evidence that addressing the low literacy levels of many children from disadvantaged backgrounds requires identifying and removing barriers these children face when starting school. Doing this will require new ways of working and greater partnerships and collaboration between schools and early years services. ; Australia's changing social landscape has led to an increased number of families with complex needs.

Low income and early cognitive development in the U.K. /

by Waldfogel, Jane | The Sutton Trust | Washbrook, Elizabeth.

Publisher: London, U.K. The Sutton Trust 2010Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: 1 February 2010 Bibliography : p. 39-40Summary: It is well known that parental income in childhood is a stronger predictor of an individual's later life outcomes in the UK than in most other developed countries. It is likely that this strong association between parental income and child outcomes results from the accumulation of disadvantage (or advantage) over the course of an individual's lifetime: from endowments inherited at birth to experiences in the family through schooling and educational achievement in childhood and the teenage years, on to employment and financial success in the labour market in adulthood. This study makes use of detailed data from the Millennium Cohort Survey (MCS) on a nationally representative sample of 12,644 British children who have been followed since birth and are 5 years old in 2006 and 2007. We explore the relationship between low income (defined as the poorest 20 percent by family income), a child's scores on three cognitive tests at age 5, and a wide range of factors that are potentially consequential for children's development.Availability: (1)

by Ben-Galim, Dalia | Institute for Public Policy Research.

Publisher: London, U.K. Institute for Public Policy Research 2011Description: PDF.Online Access: Electronic copy Notes: April 2011 Bibliography : pp. 33-35Summary: The objective of the research presented in this report is to understand why some parents who are entitled to use early years services don't normally do so. More specifically, our research seeks to understand how parents access information that shapes their decision-making about early years provision, and how service providers can better engage with and support parents to meet their families' needs. On the basis of our findings, we make the case for a number of key policy changes, meant to ensure that early years provision enables children from low-income families to break out of the intergenerational cycle of disadvantage.Availability: (1)
