Childcare business support
We offer business support and advice to childcare settings and new providers that are looking to open a setting in the borough. We provide guidance and documents to support you in opening, growing and developing your childcare business.
The Quality Improvement team also offer settings a premises visit. This is for new providers who have chosen somewhere they're planning to offer childcare places. It identifies any areas of action needed and gives you the opportunity to speak to an officer about what may be needed to meet the early years foundation stage statutory framework and other legislation. It's also a chance to find out about what may or may not have worked in other settings, and can give you an idea of what your setting could offer.
