Early years workforce

North Somerset Early Years Team aims to support the provision of high quality childcare, we have compiled information, links and resources that we believe practitioners will find useful in continuing to develop best practice within North Somerset pre-school settings.  Some have been written by the Early Years team and others may be national guidance and strategies.

The majority of documents can be found via the Early Years workforce pages.

To make it easier for you to search for them, we have grouped together some of the publications as follows:-
