The Early Years Strategy is one of a number of detailed strategies being developed under the National Children and Young People’s Policy Framework 2014-2018. This Framework, which was published recently, sets out the overall principles, vision and outcomes for children and young people and will guide actions across Government over the period 2014 to 2018.

I expect that the Early Years Strategy will be finalised and published before the end of the year.
