We are the largest and most representative early years membership organisation in England and we employ more than 2,000 people.
Our national centre is based in London supported by a network of Service Hubs across the country who deliver a range of services for our members locally.
We are dedicated to our members and their interests inform everything we do.
Every year, we are supported by around 750 volunteers who give an estimated 30,000 hours of support annually.
Our volunteers play a vital part in our work – supporting families, carrying out practical tasks such as improving outdoor spaces, organising outings, joining parent-run committees and campaigning to protect the interests of families.
