The evidence is clear that children's experiences in the early years strongly influence their outcomes in later life, across a range of areas from health and social behaviour to their employment and educational attainment. Recent neuroscientific evidence highlights the particular importance of the first three years of a child's life. A strong start in the early years increases the probability of positive outcomes in later life; a weak foundation significantly increases the risk of later difficulties. Therefore it is vitally important that children's early experiences equip them with skills they need for life. Pepper Stacey consultancy services are based on this philosophy.
