An Exciting Opportunity for a New Early Years’ Provision in Buckinghamshire

Following on from the Early Help Review, Early Years’ Service at Buckinghamshire Council are seeking expressions of interest for a provider to deliver Childcare and Funded Early Years Education, from birth to 2 years old, from the former Childrens Centre building on Steeple Claydon School site.

The provider must be prepared to deliver full day care for 51 weeks a year. The provider should be willing to work in collaboration with Steeple Claydon School to support families accessing their funded entitlement at 3 & 4 years old within the schools nursery class. This could be by offering wrap around and holiday care to the pre-reception age school pupils. This building may provide satellite accommodation for an existing Buckinghamshire provider.


Interested parties should complete an “Expression of Interest Form” in order to request an application pack; this form can be downloaded from: EYS Expression of Interest Form Application packs will be released following the closing date for Expressions of Interest below.


All applications will be reviewed and short listed for stage two. The successful providers will be invited to interview with Buckinghamshire Council during the week of 20th January 2020. The successful providers will be given the opportunity to lease the premises, for an agreed rent, to enable them to deliver the service identified above. Site specific specifications will be included in the application pack.
