  • Community Health Contracts Survey

    NHS Devon Clinical Commissioning Group, (Devon CCG), is working jointly with Children and Family Health Devon and Livewell South West to undertake a review of the current community health contracts for children, delivered by Children and Family Health Devon, and Livewell South West, across Devon, Plymouth and Torbay.

  • COVID-related closure notifications

    The Department for Education (DfE) have been made aware by Ofsted that some Early Years settings have not been reporting COVID-related closures to them because they think this is no longer a requirement.

  • Parent Declaration Form

    Many funded providers choose to use the Parents Declaration Form Template to collect the information from parents that they need to make a funding claim. If you use this template please check the refreshed version that we have produced. It is now fully accessible, meaning that anyone who may have had difficulty accessing the print on the old template should now find it much easier to read.

  • Government updates

    Updates include: ‘Actions for early years and childcare providers during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak’; ‘Protective measures for holiday or after-school clubs and other out-of-school settings for children during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak’; ‘What parents and carers need to know about early years providers, schools and colleges during COVID-19’ and ‘Guidance for parents and carers of children attending out-of-school settings during the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak’.

  • Two year old funding

    We have made some changes regarding our internal processes for 2 year old funding and new invites are being sent to parents, however for providers you will see little change.
