The Stockport Early Years Improvement team

1. Overview

The Stockport Early Years Improvement Team provides information, advice and training to local providers of childcare and early education. This is in order to improve the quality and standards within the early years in Stockport.

This is achieved through working in strong partnership with maintained schools and early years providers registered by Ofsted in the private, voluntary and independent (PVI) sector.

The Early Years Foundation Stage is the national framework for childcare and early education for all children from birth to 5 years of age. It provides the standards that all schools and early years registered providers must meet. This is to ensure that all children are kept safe and learn and develop well.
