Survey to gather UK opinion on early childhood


A new childhood survey launched by The Duchess of Cambridge aims to help children under the age of five by providing important data for those working in early years. The NSPCC has said the project will provide a ‘vital source of information’.

Adults in the UK are asked to participate in the survey to share their opinion on what influences a child’s development and what period of childhood is most important for children’s happiness.

The questions in the survey include:

  • What do you believe is most important for children growing up in the UK today to live a happy adult life?
  • Which period in a child’s life is the most important to create health and happiness in adulthood?

Closing date to participate in the survey: 21 February 2020
