Kate also explains the reason that sparks her interest in the Early Years.

She says: "I actually get asked this question a lot. I think that people assume that because I am a parent, that's why I have taken an interest in the early years.

"I think this really is bigger than that. This isn't just about happy, healthy children. This is about the society we could and can become."
