The report from an engagement exercise looking at how best to support the mental health, happiness and wellbeing of children aged 3-5 years, has been published.

Early Years Scotland was commissioned by the Scottish Government to consider what support is currently available, and what is required in the future, and to suggest recommendations for further action.

The engagement process posed a series of questions to children, families and the ELC workforce that intended to capture evidence regarding whether they felt that they had the correct level and format of support for the needs of children. Questions also focused on whether there were gaps in the current levels of support and the range of resources available, and what suggestions parents, staff and children could recommend or request.

The report provides suggested solutions which help to answer the calls made by children, parents and the ELC workforce, which will support their day-to-day practice around positive mental health and wellbeing.
