Universal support for all providers
The Early Years Service has a statutory responsibility to work with providers receiving a ‘Requires Improvement’, ‘Inadequate’ or ‘Not Met’ Ofsted judgement, or Welfare Requirements notice. Support may also be provided in situations where good quality provision is at risk of closure and the loss of places would create a sufficiency need a particular area, and also where there are issues around inclusive practice, safeguarding and equalities.
Membership allows early years settings to access additional services, support and training. Pricing for private and voluntary settings is based on the number of 3- and 4-year-olds in the setting in the summer term.
The additional bundles offer further savings. The content of the bundles is as follows:
A: Training Bundle: credits for training courses and bespoke training
B: Support Bundle: bespoke package of support visits
C: Training and Support Bundle: combination of support and training/conference places
D: Forest School Bundle: a range of support, networking and two Forest School conference places
