Linking Schools and Early Years workshop

  • The Linking Schools and Early Years (LSEY) project found that what communities do (the activities) are important, but how they do it (the approach) is what makes the difference.

    LSEY is a community partnership approach that enables communities to develop stronger linkages and partnerships between schools, early years services, families and the community.
