The Future of Early Years Conference
Since September 2017, working parents of three and four-year-olds have been entitled to 30 hours of free childcare a week. Critics of the policy argue that the hourly rate paid to providers via the Government’s Early Years Funding Formula does not cover the full cost of maintaining standards in early year’s education.
The quality of early years care and education has significant implications for children later in life. The Early Years Pupil Premium and the Disability Access Fund have been introduced to ensure young people in deprived areas and those with additional needs are not left behind.
Join us for the Early Years Conference where leading experts from the education sector will review the latest Government policy and address the biggest challenges facing the sector. Discuss potential solutions to the growing funding crisis, understand how providers can help close the attainment gap and see how the sector can recruit the skilled workforce it needs.
