Launch of The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood

We are incredibly excited to see the launch of The Royal Foundation Centre for Early Childhood, believing in the vital importance of the very early years for healthier, happier lives.

The Duchess of Cambridge has worked with academics, practitioners and parents to launch Big Change Starts Small, a project recognising the need to change the way we think and act in the early years.

This means investing in babies, children and the people around them – expectant and new parents, carers, grandparents, community supporters, health visitors, early years practitioners and more – to ensure a supportive and nurturing environment for all.

This is clearly a lifetime focus for The Duchess of Cambridge and we look forward to further collaboration to drive real, positive change for future generations.
