Review of Early Years Education and Child Care provision

A series of events were scheduled for providers and families to come and have their say on three year old’s education and early years provision.

 

Events were held:

1 June 2015: Pentecostal Church, Brecon

  • 10am -12pm: parent/carer focus group
  • 1pm - 3pm: provider focus group
  • 3.30pm - 5.30pm: open door/drop in session (open to all)

3 June 2015: Newtown Integrated Family Centre, Newtown

  • 10am -12pm: parent/carer focus group
  • 1pm - 3pm: provider focus group
  • 3.30pm - 5.30pm: open door/drop in session (open to all)

5 June 2015: Pavilion, Llandrindod

  • 10am -12pm: parent/carer focus group
  • 1pm - 3pm: provider focus group
  • 3.30pm - 5.30pm: open door/drop in session (open to all)

We announced earlier in the year that a review of early years provision for children and families is taking place across the county.All three year old children in Powys are entitled to 10 hours a week of free early years education.

Powys County Council fund settings across the county to deliver this 3+ education. There are a number of challenges, such as increased staffing costs and surplus places which makes the current situation unsustainable. Parents, carers and providers are invited to help look at ways to improve how things are done.

If you are a parent/guardian or have a general interest in Early Years education we’d love to hear your views in this questionnaire  (Closing date June 30th, 2015).

However, if you are a provider of Early Years services, we’d like to hear your views in this survey (Closing date July 15th, 2015).  


There will be another chance for families and providers to be involved again with a formal consultation in the autumn.
