Early Education and Childcare Statutory Guidance and Model Agreement

The long anticipated Statutory Guidance and Model Provider Agreement were published on the 3rd March 2017

These are the documents that guide local authorities on fulfilling their duties under the Childcare Act 2016.

They provide guidance which applies to the free entitlement for two, three and four year olds, both the universal entitlement of 15 hours and the extended entitlement of 30 hours for working families.

Bradford Council will now begin work on the impact of these changes and any requirements to amend current documentation and processes.

HOLD THE DATE - Briefing sessions for all providers will be held on the 25 May and 6 June 2017, the session times, venues and booking process will be shared once confirmed.

We urge you to read the documents, and we welcome your questions and comments via this email address sufficiency@bradford.gov.uk
