Early Years and Childcare Team

The Early Years and Childcare team deal with all work relating to inclusive practice in early years settings. They provide advice and support to Early Years professionals.

They offer information, advice, guidance, forms and links to support children in Early Years education settings and the quality of their inclusive practice.

All childcare providers are required to offer an inclusive environment and to respond to individual children’s needs.

There is also an outreach team that can support parents to find the right childcare for their child and signpost to help with childcare costs.

Please see the Portsmouth SEND Pathway for Early Years Settings.
