Business Support Spring Newsletter

"It is really nice to have all this information given from yourselves via a newsletter and is a really good way to prompt us providers to double check both legislation and all the business side of everything is up to date."

The support provided within the team can include: 

  • Access to Gloucestershire business tools, factsheets, case studies, templates and training
  • Signposting to external sources for advice and support 
    • Face to face sessions
    • One to one support

We are keen to develop resources that will suit your needs so please do let us know of any ideas/information you would like to see in the near future via email address: eyservice@gloucestershire.gov.uk

Contact a Early Years Provider Forum Representative

The role of the forum is to represent Early Years providers in the county. The forum consists of early years staff, (child minders, early years teachers, nursery practitioners and reception teachers) who meet with representatives in the Local Authority to discuss early years issues in the county and to implement new initiatives.

This forum is here for all EYFS practitioners and we would like to be more representative of the sector.
If you have any questions, worries, suggestions or opinions you want to share with us please do let your
early years forum member know. We would love to hear from you.
