estimated. Barnardos wants every child to have access to a guaranteed, quality, regulated childcare
place, staffed by well-trained practitioners capable of providing for the development and well-being of
each child in their care. This publication is a significant contribution in supporting practitioners to develop and provide quality
early childhood services. Book 1 pulls together the social and economic context, significant policy
developments and legislation as well as leadership and management content.
