Information for early years providers
Early years providers are defined as:
- private, voluntary and independent nurseries
- pre-schools and childminders
- maintained schools and academies
- out of school provision
Provider information sessions
Provider information sessions give us the opportunity to communicate important information to early years providers.
Information sessions are held termly with 2 opportunities to attend each term. There is one daytime and one evening session. The same information will be covered at each session so you only need to attend one.
Session dates for summer term 2020
When: Wednesday 17 June 2020
Part one: 10am to 10:45am
Networking break: 10:45am to 11am
Part two: 11am to midday
When: Tuesday 9 June 2020
Part one: 7pm to 7:45pm
Networking break: 7:45pm to 8pm
Part two: 8pm to 9pm
The session is split into 2 parts. The session is structured to enable providers to attend the most relevant part. There is a networking break to assist with leaving and arriving.
Part one covers local authority updates such as Ofsted, free entitlement funding, school admissions and LADO.
This session is useful for managers, childminders, out of school provisions, headteachers and bursars.
Part two is planned around provider feedback. This session is useful for managers, childminders, FS leads or other interested providers.
Our aim is to cover bitesize information for early years practitioners. For example this might include:
- spotlights on good practice in settings
- early help staff sharing knowledge on services they offer
- issues that may have an impact on children and their families
- other professionals explaining their roles
Please refer to the agenda for more information.
How to book
An email will be sent to all providers at least 2 weeks before the session to invite you to book a place as the venue has a maximum capacity.
