What is the Early Years Framework?
The Early Years Framework is a document which relates to all children from pre-birth to 8 years old, and beyond. It was published in December 2008.
This framework is about giving children the best start in life and the steps the Scottish Government, local partners and practitioners in early years services need to take to start Scotland on that journey. School-age childcare has a key role in supporting the delivery of the Framework's aims.
