Aim

The aim of the quality improvement programme is to support funded settings to make the improvements needed to meet the quality criteria part of the Early Learning and Childcare national standard.  

Making the Improvements

Selected providers and staff not meeting the national standard will be invited to participate in learning events and supported by the programme to make improvements.  

This will include learning networks, some individual improvement support for providers and settings and good practice resources. The programme will work with local authorities to support the improvement of early learning and childcare settings within their authority area.  

Working collaboratively selected providers and staff will be invited to participate in learning events and will work with the programme to make improvements. In addition to the learning sessions, other work will include learning networks, some individual improvement support for providers and settings and good practice resources. We will work with local authorities to support the improvement of early learning and childcare settings within their authority area.
