BPS Policy Statement - Early years care and support

18 May 2021

The early years are an important time for child development.

The quality of the care babies, toddlers and young children receive significantly impacts their psychological wellbeing and resilience.

This document lays out some of the ways in which a failure to support physical health and psychological wellbeing can have a significant impact on the rest of a child’s life.

It also provides recommendations for government-led responses to address this issue.
