Giving children a head start: Early years strategy

We want every child in Greater Manchester to have the best start in life. This means that every child grows up in an environment where they can develop, feel safe and secure and they have access to high quality services, with a belief in their goals and their ability to achieve them.

The primary objective of our ‘Start Well Early Years strategy’ is to increase the number of children in Greater Manchester who are ‘school ready’ by the age of five – a national measure of a child’s development.
