Please find attached the April edition of our Early Years and Childcare Stakeholders Briefing. The intention was to send out in April but COVID-19 has been keeping us occupied. The information is still appropriate, so we have sent this to you as it might still be of interest and use. Please share the update with your teams, colleagues and partners who are working or supporting families.
Another newsletter will be coming out shortly to provide an update on childcare in-line with current Government guidance.
Can I draw to your attention please that the deadline for 30 Hours and Tax-Free Childcare applications for help with childcare costs starting in September 2020, is the 31 August.
Also please find attached an important message from The Home Office relating to Child Safeguarding, with a supporting leaflet.
Any queries or questions, please get in touch.
