Early Years Consultations

Quick Navigation

Jul 11 2022

The first consultation is on staff:child ratios for 2-year-olds in group-based settings, clarifying greater flexibilities for childminders when caring for sibling children or their own child, and supervision requirements while children are eating.

The second consultation is on updating the early years funding formulae.

There is also a new campaign to encourage take-up of Tax-Free Childcare and the Universal Credit Childcare offer (here), and support to increase the number of childminders.

Please complete these and share widely.
