early years collaborative
What is the early years collaborative?
The Early Years Collaborative builds upon the Early Year Framework and its objective is to "accelerate the conversion of the high level principles set out in GIRFEC and the Early Years Framework into practical action." (Scottish Government)
Getting It Right For Every Child and the Wellbeing Indicators are central to this initiative. The initial 4 national workstreams are focused on improving outcomes for pre-school children.

The government is currently developing a 5th workstream which will focus on school-age children. SOSCN is involved in the current consultation process as school-age childcare services should be included in this workstream.
