The children's plan is a ten year proposal set out by the Department of Children, Schools and Families…. The plan outlines a vision to improve schools and a step-change in the way parents and families are supported to deal with challenges faced by young people in the 21st century.

Ambitions for all children described in the children's plan, goals for 2020, include: £1 billion allocated to fund the plan over the next three years; better support for parents and families central to the plan; new era for kid's play and positive activities for young people; free child care for two year olds from deprived communities; and, overhaul of the primary curriculum.
