This review of the existing body of knowledge concerning the links between poverty and early childhood education and care (ECEC) provision1 aims to inform the realisation of the Joseph Rowntree Foundation’s 2015 UK anti-poverty strategy development programme. It has three main objectives:
This evidence review is one of a series of 34 such reviews commissioned by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation (JRF) to inform a programme of anti-poverty strategies for the UK to be published in 2015/16. Thus the definition of poverty employed here is the one developed by JRF to underpin this programme: ‘When a person’s resources (mainly their material resources) are not sufficient to meet their minimum needs (including social participation)’. In the case of young children, this definition is mediated by the conditions within the households they live in and decisions made by parents as proxies for their children.
