I'm not sure that makes the research 'flawed'. As I understand it, the report surveyed kids under four who live in SureStart areas. People who want to detract from the report's criticisms and defend the government have said that it should only have surveyed kids who use SureStart services. But surely then, it would have missed out on the crucial issue of whether kids in the area are accessing the services or not.

Ask people who use SureStart and they will probably tell you that the toddler group / midwife / language support / respite creche / exercise class / etc is great. But the fact remains that for many poor and/or vulnerable parents and kids, the answer would be "What's SureStart?"
