Early Years in Schools
High quality early education and childcare has a positive impact on a child’s later success and future outcomes. Evidence shows that starting younger, in high quality teacher-led provision can have a real, lasting impact on life chances, particularly for those from the most disadvantaged families.

The DfE has produced a range of resources, case studies, guides and financial models, designed to help schools develop a nursery offer. Schools can offer sustainable provision for nursery children (including for those aged two) and can open from 8am-6pm to provide maximum flexibility for parents.
