Social capital and sense of community: What do they mean for young children’s success at school?

This paper reports on selected findings from child data collected during the first phase of a 3-year longitudinal study of several communities in Queensland with recently established early childhood and family hubs. The research reported in this paper is part of a larger study that bridges and advances several bodies of evidence by investigating the social capital, sense of community and wellbeing of young children, their families and community members in the context of a statewide initiative of integrated early childhood and family hubs in Queensland (Farrell, Tayler & Tennent, 2003; Tayler, Tennent, Farrell & Gahan, 2002; Tennent, Tayler & Farrell, 2002).
