Review:

This candid and topical discussion from a Sure Start insider provides clear lessons for policymakers and the wider children's policy agenda. Polly Toynbee, Guardian

A rare achievement, this book gives both a personal story and an excellent description of the policy making process. Eisenstadt eloquently describes the tensions and pressures, as well as the achievements, in providing new services for young children and families. Kathy Sylva, Professor of Educational Psychology University of Oxford

"In "Providing a Sure Start", Naomi Eisenstadt, who directed the [titular] program for its first seven years, tells the story of this ambitious program. Eisenstadt is as interested in the politics of the program as she is in its substance, and so we learn a great deal about why government ministers came to care about early childhood and why they became such loyal supporters of Sure Start."--Jane Waldfogel "Journal of Policy Analysis and Management "
