Toddlers should be taught "fundamental British values" to protect children from religious radicals, Education Secretary Nicky Morgan will announce today.
This will include teaching right from wrong, learning to take turns to share and challenging negative attitudes.
Morgan is also expected to announce that local authorities will be allowed to cut off funding to early year providers with links to extremist views including those who teach creationism as scientific fact.
The measures come in the wake of the "Trojan Horse" controversy in Birmingham.
