Mitchell & Brown (1991) have described a general consensus among those working in early intervention that their aims are: to provide early stimulation as a basis for subsequent learning; to minimise existing difficulties; and to try to prevent later difficulties from arising. Bailey & Wolery (1992), on the basis of their study of different intervention schemes, have similarly been able to identify some common goals. Importantly, they include among these a consideration of family priorities: (1) to support families in achieving their own goals; (2) to promote child engagement, independence and mastery; (3) to promote development in key domains; (4) to build and support children's social competence; (5) to promote the generalised use of skills; (6) to provide and prepare for normalised life experiences; (7) to prevent the emergence of future problems or disabilities.

Once a year admission is being undertaken in September on a rapidly increasing basis, because children bring with them a guaranteed and much needed income source in these days of diminishing staff and budgets. Some providers might want to offer a form of schooling more strongly teacher-determined than traditional nursery provision, where the emphasis is on children pursuing their interests in an appropriately structured environment, supported by informed adults. In many cases, these young children are undoubtedly capable of operating at level one and perhaps level two of the National Curriculum (Sylva, 1991).
