Supporting school-based childcare providers

young girl CHILDCARE IN SCHOOLS: Family Action was funded by the DfE as part of The National Prospectus Grants Programme 2015-16 to deliver a new programme: Increasing the provision of high-quality, inclusive school-based childcare for 0-5s with special educational needs and disabilities (SEND).

Between April 2015 and March 2016, Family Action’s Childcare in Schools team supported selected school-based providers in England (eg children's centres, PVIs, schools, nurseries) to develop their inclusive childcare practices for 0-5s with SEND.

The team provided intensive support to settings in three main areas: 

  • North (eg Morecambe, Leeds)
  • Midlands / North London (eg Bedworth, Milton Keynes)
  • South / South London (eg Southampton, Croydon).

During the course of the twelve-month project we also provided light support and face-to-face training for additional settings across the country (eg Devon).
