  • A longitudinal study funded by the Department for Children, Schools and Families (DCSF):
    • Effective Provision of Preschool Education Project

(EPPE) 1997-2003

    • Effective Preschool and Primary Education Project

(EPPE 3-11) 2003-2007

    • Effective Preschool, Primary and Secondary Education Project

(EPPSE 3-14) 2007-2011

  • These studies focus on the progress and development of 3,000 children from entering preschool to the end of Key Stage Three (3 to 14 years of age)

developmental risks and protection
Developmental risks and protection
  • Many measures of disadvantage were found to pose a risk to development.
    • e.g. SES, ethnicity, Home Learning Environment
  • Various aspects of education were found to mitigate the impacts of these risks.
    • i.e. confer protection

Effects of Social Class on Reading and Writing at age 7

social class and

pre-school experience

WRITING at key stage 1,

social class and

pre-school experience

effects of educational quality vary by social class
Effects of educational quality vary by social class

At Year 6 (age 10) for social behaviours:

  • The quality of the curricular provision of pre-schools had a larger effect for those children who:
    • Had Special Educational Needs (SEN)
      • (Outcomes: Self-regulation, pro-social behaviour, hyperactivity, anti-social behaviour)
    • Scored highly on the Index of Multiple Disadvantage
      • (Outcomes: Hyperactivity, anti-social behaviour)

5. An in-depth exploration into variations in quality effects

ESRC CASE study examining:

  • Developmental Risks
  • Developmental Resilience
  • Whether pre-school quality could act to Protect development

Conceptualised a ‘Family level risk’ that included measures that

are indicative of “disadvantage”
