Catherine visited Thinktank museum in Birmingham to mark the launch of 5 Big Questions – an online survey asking people to provide their view on raising children under five.

She also made a visit to a nursery in London and a baby sensory class in Cardiff for the launch. Following that, the Duchess visited HM Prison Send to talk with women who have been rehabilitated as well as those who are currently at the prison.

Today The Duchess of Cambridge launches #5BigQuestions 📋 on the Under 5s, a landmark survey which gives people across the UK an opportunity to provide their view on raising the next generation. The survey is designed to bring together the thoughts of as many people across the UK as possible – recognising that everyone has a role in ensuring strong, healthy foundations for the youngest in our society that will positively affect their lifelong outcomes. 5 Big Questions on the Under 5s aims to spark the biggest ever conversation on early childhood that will ultimately help bring about positive, lasting change for generations to come. Earlier today The Duchess kickstarted the launch of the survey during a visit to MiniBrum at @thinktankmuseum, where she was shown around the interactive, child-sized mini-city by children who helped design the space and spoke to parents and carers about the survey. On the 5 Big Questions on the Under 5s Survey, The Duchess said: • “Parents, carers and families are at the heart of caring for children in the formative years, so that is why I want to listen to them. • As a parent I know how much we cherish the future health and happiness of our children. • I want to hear the key issues affecting our families and communities so I can focus my work on where it is needed most. • My ambition is to provide a lasting change for generations to come.” • Take 5 minutes to visit 5bigquestions.org.uk (link in bio) to find out more and fill out the survey.

Speaking at MiniBrum, an interactive mini-city within Thinktank, the Duchess said, “I’m here today to launch a survey to hear society’s views about raising the next generation.

“Parents, carers and families are at the heart of caring for children in the formative years so that is why I really want to listen to them.

“The early years are more crucial for future health and happiness than any other moment in our lifetime.”

The poll is part of a project that has been eight years in the making for Catherine, with the Duchess focusing much of her work on how social challenges affect childhood development.
