The Duchess of Cambridge is heading on a 24-hour tour of the country in support of how early childhood experiences can affect children as they grow.
From Jan. 21 to 22, Kate Middleton will travel to Birmingham, London, Cardiff, and Surrey to launch “5 big questions on the under-5s.” The survey aims “to spark the biggest ever conversation on early childhood that will ultimately help bring about positive, lasting change for generations to come.”
The answers from the short five-question survey will help those working in the early years sector, as well as Kate, shape her work through the Royal Foundation, as children are a large focus of her time and passion.
Ipsos MORI, who is conducting the survey on behalf of the Royal Foundation, said, “The study seeks to better understand public perceptions of the importance of the early years, responsibilities for individuals and society and the support parents of 0-5-year-olds feel they need and receive during that stage of life.”
Kate started the tour at the MiniBrum at Thinktank Birmingham Science Museum. She will also venture to the LEYF Nursery to serve breakfast to the kids while talking about the importance of nutritious food. In Cardiff, she will stop by a baby sensory class at the Ely and Caerau Children’s Centre to learn about the work being done there.
