Childcare Provider Network

The Early Years Advisory Team have reorganised the Childcare Provider Network (CPN) sessions following on from Providers feedback. The first hour of the session will be for updates and guest speakers, these may include colleagues from Children centres, Social care or other agencies.

The second hour of the session will be a networking session which will have a different topic each term (we will ask you to complete feedback after each session and the topic with the most votes will be included in the following terms CPN). You will be notified ahead of time so you can bring any resources, equipment or documentation you wish to share with your early years colleagues. This is also a great opportunity to catch up with your Inclusion and Improvement Advisor and other members of the Early Years Team.  

The Childcare Provider Network sessions are held termly and support anyone leading early years practice and provision in pre-schools, day nurseries and in childminder settings.
