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 Early Years Agenda campaign called for a child-focused, evidenced-based approach to early years policy.
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 Good Morning Britain about the 30-hour free entitlement offer and the sector's funding concerns (first aired 31.08.17).
