The study has started and the research teams across the Bristol, Birmingham and Glasgow Universities are recruiting the 56 nurseries and 784 children to take part in NAP SACC UK.

We are recruiting nurseries between November 2019 and February 2020, and children between November 2019 and April 2020. Once we have signed consent forms from our participants, we will collect the data from them described in the information sheets which can be downloaded here.


January 2020

We are still recruiting nurseries and children, but have started collecting data from consenting participants. This data collection phase will be ongoing until June 2020.


March 2020

Due to the outbreak of Covid-19, from 16th March we have decided to pause the study to ensure the safety of our research staff and participants. This means that all ongoing tasks related to the study, including recruitment and data collection have been put on hold. We will be in touch with all participating nurseries and parents with our plans to restart the study.

All data collection relating to the NAP SACC UK study has been suspended due to Covid-19 restrictions and will be considered for restart by the funders later in 2021. Any questions, please feel free to contact the team:
