There’s a lot of talk about the benefits of quality early learning for children, but what do they think about it?  The Early Learning Everyone Benefits Campaign is conducting a survey to find out what kids under five think. 

Jo Briskey, Executive Director of The Parenthood is helping with the data, putting the child's voice back into the education debate where it normally gets lost. She explains why they’re doing it, some initial findings and what they hope to achieve.

If you’d like to complete the survey, head to the Early Learning Everyone Benefits website.
