This chapter will tell three key stories in the development of Sure Start: the impact on Sure Start Local Programmes (SSLPs) of the merger at the Department for Education and Skills (DfES) of Sure Start, Early Years Education and Childcare, and particularly the impact of the 2002 Comprehensive Spending Review (CSR); the development of Choice for Parents, the Best Start for Children: A Ten Year Strategy for Childcare, the document produced by the Treasury and DfES that set the framework for Early Years and childcare services for the foreseeable future; and the launch of the Ten Year Strategy and the media uproar following the publication, which heralded the end of Sure Start.

Keywords:   Sure Start, Department for Education and Skills, Comprehensive Spending Review, childcare services, Ten Year Strategy
