Raising Standards in Early Years Provision and Care

Location: London
Organiser: Inside Government

This Forum provides attendees with an opportunity to learn lessons from the pilot areas and Early Innovators who have been trialling, and researching the implications of, the extended hours offer for early years care.

Participants will also hear about how the new funding formula will work alongside these changes, and explore how the new inspection process will affect the standards they must adhere to.
