Request for setting support

We are asking that settings refer themselves as a whole setting, for support from the Early Years Service, to request advice, guidance and support with a range of things. These can include: looking at your environment, supporting with transitions or helping you to include/meet the learning and development needs of individual children by ensuring that ordinarily available provision is in place.

Please use the referral form Early Years Service – setting support request formto make any referrals to the Early Years Service.


Please also see our Early Years Service – Local Offer to Early Years Providers for further information about how we are able to support you and your setting team.


Please note: - Your allocated Early Years Lead Adviser will be able to offer additional support with individual children if it is felt and agreed that further support is required. Please ensure to refer your whole setting first, and then additional processes can be applied if required.
