Working for you

As the voice of the early years sector, we are committed to speaking out on your behalf. We represent your views and concerns in a number of ways:

  • Direct line to government: we regularly meet with senior representatives from the government, including the Cabinet Office, Department for Education, and the House of Lords.
  • Campaigning: our landmark Rewind on Ratios campaign successfully blocked government plans to relax childcare ratios in England. Our current Early Years Agenda campaign calls for a child-focused, evidenced-based approach to early years policy. This campaign has been endorsed by practitioners across the country.
  • Strong media presence: we are regularly featured in both national and local media. You can see an example below, where our chief executive Neil Leitch speaks to Sky News about the 30-hour free entitlement offer and the sector's funding concerns:
