As a sub-committee of the Alliance, we support approximately 200 members in West Yorkshire (South) including pre-schools, day nurseries, toddler groups, nursery schools, children's centres and individuals.

We have been providing high quality support and advice to providers of early years education and childcare in the West Yorkshire (South) area for more than 50 years. The type of support we offer ranges from how to prepare for Ofsted inspections to advice on the roles and responsibilities of pre-school committees. We also create and deliver bespoke workshops to individual settings which may require assistance on more complicated issues.

Our Executive Committee of volunteers meets half-termly to discuss early years issues and the priorities of our members. These volunteers are elected at our AGM in October each year.

Our Mission is to:

  • Help Children succeed

  • Create the childcare that families need

  • Help build learning communities
