What is the Early Years Collaborative?Early years collaborative

The Early Years Collaborative is national initiative bringing together practitioners from all services working with children 0-8 years and their families. Membership includes Education, Health, Social Work, Police and the voluntary sector all working together to improve outcomes for children and families with the ambition to make Scotland the best place in the world to grow up.

Whilst the EYC is a quality improvement programme, it’s ethos is about empowering the practitioners working directly with children and families to make changes that will improve the way we engage and work with them.


Undertaking small tests of change shouldn’t require a large amount of resource other than a piece of paper, a pen/pencil and some of your time. To make things easier, there are a number of templates available that can be typed/edited or printed.
