Business Engagement in Early Years is a business-led programme, funded by the Scottish Government, offering businesses a structured means to help children living in less affluent areas.
The programme developed a series of activity plans that any business volunteer, regardless of industry or role, would be able to run in early years institutions to help young children with the areas listed above. These activities were designed in collaboration with the early years institutions and businesses in our pilot programme and we are very thankful for their feedback and contributions.
This toolkit is for every business and early years institution across Scotland to help create a sustainable, successful relationship. This in turn will help young children achieve their full potential and become responsible citizens and skilled employees.
