Early Years and Childcare


Welcome to Cambridgeshire's support portal for early years and childcare providers, including schools reception and early years provision. It is devised to help practitioners and childcare providers meet statutory requirements and deliver quality education and care. Within these pages, our advisors offer information and guidance on Quality Improvement, Safeguarding, Business and Governance, Special Educational Needs Disability (SEND), Narrowing the Gap and Workforce Development, as well as other useful resources.
