The 2019 About Early Years annual report is out! Download FREE from our reports page
Your A to Z of trends and challenges in the early years sector, our annual report rounds-up research from across the year and all the latest official statistics, from capacity and occupancy, to the funding deficit and workforce challenges.
With a funding gap of £662 million and a funding promise of just £66 million in the recent spending review the sector will be hoping for better news on 13 December. Election promises are coming thick and fast, and we will be costing election pledges as official manifestos are released. Register for our newsletter to get the latest updates.
But why stop at reading party manifestos? Why not come together with the sector and share your own ideas about policy solutions that could work for every child, deliver best value for the Treasury, support a thriving sector and give the early years workforce the status and pay they deserve?
We invite you to join us in the #TheBigDebate, on 23 January in central London and at regional venues to be confirmed. With a new Government in place, and no doubt new promises to deliver, there will be lots to discuss. Read more about it HERE
