She has been specialist adviser to the UK Parliamentary Select Committee on Education 2000-2009 and was awarded an OBE in for services to children and families.

Professor Kathy Sylva presented research findings from several studies in the UK – all aimed at identifying high quality centres and the effects they have on children’s development. She also discussed the contribution of pedagogy and of staff qualifications to the creation of early childhood environments that both nurture and challenge the child. The studies include the EPPE Project (Effective Preschool and Primary Education) and others carried out at the University of Oxford.
