The Early Years team will support providers to offer:

  • quality and consistency so that every child makes the progress that they are entitled to make and no child gets left behind;
  • a secure foundation through learning and development opportunities which are planned around the needs and interests of each individual child and are assessed and reviewed regularly;
  • partnership working between practitioners and parents and/or carers;
  • equality of opportunity and anti-discriminatory practice, ensuring that every child is included and supported.

The Early Years team will:

  • train, develop, scaffold and empower providers to be outstanding ;
  • support providers in being self-evaluative in order to pursue continuous improvement;
  • build capacity within the sector so that support, challenge and monitoring come from within.
