    Early Years Framework 2008 10 key elements

    Early Years Taskforce 2011 In partnership with local government, the NHS, the police and the Third Sector

  • Our Ambition To make Scotland the best place in the world to grow up in by improving outcomes, and reducing inequalities, for all babies, children, mothers, fathers and families across Scotland to ensure that all children have the best start in life and are ready to succeed

  • Early Years Collaborative

  • Workstream 1

    To ensure that women experience positive pregnancies which result in the birth of more healthy babies as evidenced by a reduction of 15% in the rates of:

    - stillbirths (from 4.9 per 1000 births in 2010 to 4.3 per 1000 births in 2015)

    - infant mortality (from 3.7 per 1000 live births in 2010 to 3.1 per 1000 live births in 2015)

  • Workstream 2

    85% of all children within each CPP have reached all of the expected developmental milestones at the time of the childs 27-30 month child health review by end-2016

  • Workstream 3

    90% of all children within each CPP have reached all of the expected developmental milestones at the time the child starts primary school, by end-2017

  • Workstream 4 - Leadership

    Provide the Leadership System to support quality improvement across the Early Years Collaborative

    Timely delivery of all three workstream stretch aims

  • Welcome and introductions**Lets put the EYC into some sort of context National outcome 2007

    Early years framework 2008 lay down 10 key elements of transformational change such as offering a coherent approach, using the strength of universal services to deliver prevention and early intervention

    The Early Years Taskforce 2011 was established to develop and drive strategic change and the Early Years Collaborative is the creation of a structure in which partners can learn from each other and recognised experts in areas they want to make improvements

    *Threaded throughout the early years agenda is getting it right for every child which is founded on the principles of early intervention through appropriate, proportionate and timely intervention, ensuring that all Scotlands children and their families have consistent and co-ordinated care when they need itThe Early Years Taskforce created their own ambition statement in 2011 and the Collaborative has been developed to help us to deliver this.*We have considered how we might make this into manageable chunks so that partners can coalesce around particular communities of interest

    Maternity and neonatal period . links to single agency, health led activity on maternal smoking, induction and PPH. EYC will bring in multiagency partners to contribute to these issues where possible and widen out aims to include wider range of issues such as alcohol, drugs, domestic violence etc

    1 month to 3 years- early development period- busiest period for neural proliferation, crucial for building brain architecture and supporting positive brain chemistry. Focus on parent/child interaction, attachment, communication and development of fine and gross motor skills

    3-5 years- cementing those skills gained and building the complexity of developing competencies

    Leadership ensuring that the right conditions exist to create, stimulate and facilitate an improvement culture and to ensure barriers to improvement are removed quickly.

    In addition there is now scoping around a 5th workstream for children from the start of primary school to age 8 which aligns the EYC with the 0-8 age range of the Early Years Framework and covers Early Level within Curriculum for Excellence. *The taskforce, consisting of experts and professionals from early years across Scotland developed three stretch aims, focusing on three main areasPre-conception to 1 year1 year to 30 months And 30 months primary school There is also be a fourth workstream around leadership and how leaders across scotland can lead the change

    **EYC is the means to deliver all the aspirations from the framework, the task force and GIRFEC*Going back to the stretch aims and the magnitude of them, this has a purpose. If we make the improvement target only 1%, we would just work harder, we wouldnt change the systemStretching the aims and make the improvement task harder means we have to stand back and take stock.We have to get off the hamster wheel and look at what we need to do. We cant do it by hard work alone. We need to change the system

    ***444So what does the EY Collaborative look like so far, first CPP areas were asked to complete some pre work looking at their local priorities and where the EYC sat with what was happening locally. Then the 1st big learning event in Glasgow where we saw delegates from all over Scotland gathered and there was a commitment made to be part of the Collaborative otherwise known as the Kickoff, then into the 1st action period, where areas were gathering their home and away teams, having local learning sessions and starting to carry out small tests of change, using the Plan, Do, Study, Act, cycle with many support structures in place

    Following LS2 at the end of May, we are now in Action Period 2 with the work & support continuing and planning is in progress for LS3. Dates are also confirmed for LS 4, 5 & 6 next year.

    *Brief explanation of the Model for Improvement which is in two parts the thinking part the 3 questions at the top the doing part the PDSA cycles

    There are lots of ways of engaging with the EYC and for those who wish for more information the websites above are a good place to start. All things EYC and GIRFEC on twitter use the hashtag #bestplacetogrowup and @eycollaborative is definitely worth a follow for any twitter users. **To close, lets have a look at the hopes for the EYC of some of the practitioners who attended LS1
