Ark Start is pleased to be part of the coalition of organisations looking at how to improve the early years system.

The coalition, convened by Kindred Squared, including Early Education and providers LEYF and Ark Start, has identified a series of practical and affordable new options for more efficient and effective Early Years spending in England. 

There’s widespread acceptance that the current system is broken and the coalition has produced four new economic options which improve the system for children, parents and providers. The analysis by Frontier Economics, one of the largest economic consultancies in Europe, is based on current government spending but shows how radical rebalancing could better support working families and lead to better outcomes for children.

The work is supported by HFL Education, Leeds Beckett University – The International Montessori Institute, Nesta, Save the Children and The Sutton Trust
