  • We are a small, friendly Early Years research company based in St Albans, Hertfordshire.
  • Our projects involve gathering independent feedback from parents and children to generate evidence of success and areas for development.
  • Working primarily with Children’s Centres, we are passionate about the importance of early intervention in improving children's life chances and are proud of the role we play in evidencing their impact on families’ lives.
  • Our small core team is supported by a network of experienced freelance consultants who are involved on a project-by-project basis, as we match skills to project needs. Our consultants include Speech and Language Therapists, Early Years professionals, Interviewers and Data Analysts.
  • Since 2009 we’ve worked within Early Years to gather and analyse feedback from parents, carers and children in order to identify key successes and areas for development.
  • We have worked with over 30 Children’s Centres in Hertfordshire, Barnet, Luton and Milton Keynes to collate evidence of impact and identify areas for development.
  • We are specialists in consulting appropriately with parents, carers and children, and providing in-depth analysis. We understand and are sensitive to the priorities, pressures and challenges involved in working in Early Years. We aim to help you make a difference to your families’ lives.
