Recommended Posts

What is everyones view on the subject. I am still trying to work it out if good or bad. I just hope it is for all settings not just Childrens Centres

Actually I'm far more interested in the piece further down the page: "Quality Testing for Children's Centres" which says:-


"The government is developing tools to help children's centres check they are improving children's outcomes and providing value for money.


In a letter to children's services directors Sheila Scales, director of the Department for Children, Schools and Families' early years, extended schools and special needs group, said help with performance management will be made available.


She said the government is considering a "benchmarking system" that will help centres ensure they are offering value for money and "understand fully the costs involved" in offering services.


Further guidance to be made available later this year will cover issues including governance, staff training and management."


I'm not sure if this is old news or not - but seem to have missed it before!


As for free childcare from 0-5s this would be highly discriminatory if it were only for children who attend children's centres. We don't have any in our Borough!
