Childcare business support

Following its recent consultation Ofsted have updated several documents to be used from September 2019. The education inspection framework (EIF) will replace the current common inspection framework (CIF) that has been in place since 2015

Grants are available to setting based providers to support the delivery of the 2-year-old offer and the Universal and Extended Funded Entitlement for eligible 3 & 4-year-olds. 

Early Years are committed to supporting all childcare providers in Buckinghamshire and visit provision regularly to offer advice and guidance to ensure the appropriate legislation and Ofsted and EYFS requirements are being met. Support is available to the whole organisation, not only the staff employed in the setting.

Following numerous requests from providers, the template document forms have been devised by Early Years Officers. These are reference tools and guidance to support settings with implementing and strengthening daily practice and procedures.

The childcare sector is in need of qualified employees, but also offers excellent training opportunities.
You can advertise your vacancy on the Buckinghamshire Council public website.
