About the Author

Naomi Eisenstadt is a senior research fellow at the University of Oxford. She is a retired civil servant who ran the Sure Start Unit for its first seven years. She has extensive experience, both working directly with children and families and at the most senior levels in Government.

"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
