Evaluation of children's centres in England (ECCE)

The ECCE provides an in-depth understanding of children's centre services in deprived areas.

The ECCE evaluates how effective children’s centres are for children and families. It also assesses the cost of running centres along with the different types of services they provide.

Research reports published since 2010 are available on GOV.UK. You can find our archived research on the National Archives. Note: the search function is not available on archived content so please use the filters on the left of each page.
