The Effective Provision of Pre-school Education (2004) (EPPE) project investigated the effects of preschool education and care on children’s development. EPPE explored the characteristics of effective practice.


The research was clear, settings that have staff with higher qualifications have higher quality scores and their children make more progress.


Our latest Ofsted Report is evidence of how crucial it is to have a highly skilled and experienced team. We have established a team passionate about their work and they are determined to do it well. They care deeply for the children. Our vision is to provide an excellent service for the children and their families that makes a positive difference to their lives.


The Effective Provision of Pre-School Education (EPPE) Project
The Effective Provision of Pre-School Education (EPPE) project is the first major European longitudinal study of a national sample of young children’s development between the ages of 3 and 7 years. To investigate the effects of pre-school education, the EPPE team collected a wide range of information on 3,000 children.
