To help children read well, we need to support them to develop early language skills before they start school.

This Care Inspectorate report explains how we need to commit to boosting the early language skills of our most vulnerable children.

High-quality services and support for families can help overcome the impact of poverty, highlighting the potential for early learning and childcare services to support young children’s language development.
