This report has been published by the University of Melbourne.

The Early Years Education Program is a three-year intervention, which aims to help improve the development of young children who have encountered extreme adversity or abuse.

The report presents findings of an evaluation that looked at the program's impact on children and parents after the first two years of enrolment. Among its key findings, the evaluation found that the program has had a positive impact on the children's IQ, protective factors related to resilience, and social-emotional development.
