Founding Sponsor

We are delighted that the Early Years Alliance is taking a lead role as founding sponsor of the About Early Years programme.

“Having worked with Ceeda on a number of research projects, we are pleased and excited to be part of this exciting venture. We know first-hand the value of robust, independent early years research and at a time of intense sector debate, About Early Years will provide a vital intelligence base from which to inform and influence early years policy.” Neil Leitch, Chief Executive of the Early Years Alliance.


Media Partner

"As the leading magazine and website for the early years community, Nursery World is delighted to be the media partner for About Early Years. For too long, policy and business decisions in the early years sector have been made without sufficient, robust data to inform them. With the new Early Years National Funding Formula in place, the full roll-out of the 30 hours programme underway, the Workforce Strategy released, and a whole host of cost pressures for providers, it is crucial that independent, large-scale research and analysis is available, and Nursery World is very keen to play its part." Liz Roberts, Editor, Nursery World.
