Early years and childcare: Role of the local authority
Decision Maker: Children & Young People Committee
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: No
Due to changes in the role of the local authority in relation to childcare as set out Government legislation plans are necessary to improve the quality and affordability of Childcare. The Government is strengthening the inspection regime, making Ofsted the sole arbiter of quality and limiting the role of the local authority.
RESOLVED – That the Committee agrees to continue to promote high quality early years provision across the city by offering support to all early years providers and by targeting most support on the weakest early years providers and those with the highest numbers of funded two year olds.
