Report by Corporate Director for Children’s Services (CMDECS4).


The premises arrangements for third party early years and childcare providers occupying school and council sites was approved by Delegated Decision in 2014. Since then, national initiatives have expanded and extended childcare entitlements for parents.


The Council has statutory obligations around the sufficiency of places and commissions a mixed market of providers to deliver the early education and childcare entitlements.  The proposed updated premises arrangements have been a collaboration between the estates and early years teams, clarifying arrangements and simplifying the information on costs.


The Cabinet Member for Education & Cultural Services is RECOMMENDED to approve the updated premises arrangements for third party providers occupying school or council sites.
