Early Years and Childcare

The early years and childcare service provides a range of high-quality services for families and practitioners who support children to thrive and develop, especially in the first five years. 

We achieve this by:

  • ensuring the sufficiency of early years and childcare places in settings across PVI settings, children’s centres, schools and childminders
  • supporting the quality of education and care in all early years settings through monitoring and providing bespoke advice and support
  • working in partnership and commissioning a range of additional support services for families and children who need them most
  • providing free, impartial information, advice and guidance about services for children, young people and families in Islington through the Family Information Service.
