Learning from Sure Start: Working with Young Children & their Families by Jo Weinberger et al (Eds)

Reviewed by Dr S Alexander
© ChildForum 


Here is an extraordinary text.  It is a critical and insightful examination by insiders and outsiders from an inter-disciplinary perspective of one early childhood programme – Foxhill and Parson Cross Sure Start.  It has set a new standard for programme evaluations.

Learning from Sure Start explains in clear detail the processes of undertaking evaluation and research, critically reports findings, discusses issues and candidly identifies problems and lessons learnt. The maxim of “No mistakes – no learning” guides the honesty that is as plain as the nose on your face in this text.
