All local authorities in England have been focused on increasing the quantity of pre-school services. As important is an emphasis on quality. At the very least this means offering interventions that have been shown by rigorous evaluation to be effective. It is even more beneficial to use better diagnosis of risk and protective factors to target preventive services on children who could benefit most. This includes analysis of the timing and onset of childhood risks. A parallel desire should be to evaluate what works, both at an individual case-by case level, and also for entire programmes.
