Childcare business support

This Guide cannot hope to deal with every separate factual circumstance and that if in doubt it remains sensible to take specific advice.

Bringing Employees Back To Work


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.

To help your business recovery from the effects of the Pandemic we have created a Covid recovery check that will help you identify areas of strength and areas to develop within your business. The check has instructions for use on the first page, if you need any assistance with using the check please contact your key contact.
