SEED - Study of Early Education and Development

Help us and the DfE understand the impact of early education

Thank you for your interest in the SEED study.

A new wave of SEED is taking place in 2022. We are returning to face-to-face fieldwork for the first time since 2018, with precautions in place to keep families and interviewers COVID-19 safe. This wave also includes a short survey with the class teachers of SEED children, examining the children’s attitudes, behaviours and developments in school.

In 2020 and 2021, we carried out two special waves of the SEED survey of families. These examined families’ experiences during the COVID-19 pandemic and school closures. If you are interested to find out more, results of these special waves of SEED can be found on the findings page.

If you would like more information about the study, please visit the SEED projects website. It provides additional information, and contact details for the research team should you have further questions.
