What is a social policy in relation to Childcare? Could I get an example of a childcare social policy please?

I´m completing Level 6 Childhood Social, Legal and Health Studies.

Assignment is- "Research one area of social policy that has positively affected children´s early development and education"

I keep googling Social Policy... I think it is the government guidelines/principles/legislation related to childcare sector but I´m not sure and still don´t really understand thats why I was hoping for an example?

Many Thanks

An example would be the introduction of the Free Pre-School year in Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) Programme
You can find information on this on the Department of Children and Youth Affairs website as a starting point.
