Early Years Census – Funded Private, Voluntary and Independent (PVI) providers

Thank you to those funded private, voluntary and independent (PVI) providers (including governor run pre-schools) who have submitted their Early Years Census information through the new Self Update icon on the provider portal.

The information provided will be used by Devon County Council (DCC) to submit an Early Years Census return to the Department for Education (DfE) on your behalf. DCC are required by law to submit this return each spring and it is a requirement, as per the provider agreement, for all funded providers to complete this information. For those who have not done so already, please submit your information to us by Friday 12th February.

Please read the Census guidance before completing the Census. Upon entering the Self Update section of the portal, It is important to click on the Early Years Census link, in the column next to your provider name, to complete your census return.

If you have any queries about the Early Years Census or do not have access to the Self Update icon please email childcareinfo@devon.gov.uk or phone 01392 383000 and ask for Wayne Pearce. Please do not contact the Early Years Help desk with any queries about the Census.
