Early Language Skills In Nurseries

EDM number 1421 in 2015-16, proposed by Tom Brake on 26/04/2016.
Categorised under the topic of Pre-school education.

That this House expresses disappointment that some children in England are falling behind in crucial early language skills before they have reached school age; regrets that children from more disadvantaged backgrounds can be 15 months behind peers from more fortunate backgrounds at just five years old; recognises the importance of high quality nursery education in the early years of a child's development and calls on the Government to improve early learning in nurseries through implementing high quality nursery education, led by a qualified nursery teacher.

This motion has been signed by a total of 15 MPs.
