DfE | The Study of Early Education and Development
What is SEED?
The Study of Early Education and Development (SEED) is a major new longitudinal study which will follow 8,000 two-year-olds from across England through to the end of KS1. It will find out how childcare and early education can help to give children the best start in life and what is important for high quality childcare provision. The study is being carried out by NatCen Social Research, working with Frontier Economics, the University of Oxford and 4Children, on behalf of the Department for Education (DfE).
