The very early years of a child’s life are key in shaping their lifelong learning, development, and achievements. Working in partnership with parents and carers, early years teams deliver the early learning experiences that provide the foundation of children’s educational journeys, ensuring that every child has the best possible start in life. The Early Years Team of the Year Award recognises those teams whose dedication and commitment have helped transform children’s early learning and development.
We are looking for stories that demonstrate the positive impact early years teams have had on an individual child, a group of children, their families, or the wider community.
