In their report 'Putting quality at the heart of early years' the Family and Childcare trust report calls for the introduction of an Early Excellence Fund to support four aims. The aims are: 1) Ensuring there is at least one experienced early years graduate in every setting delivering free childcare, prioritising settings delivering free early education for the most disadvantaged two year olds. 2) Providing financial incentives for small childcare settings to provide training and professional development for non-graduate staff. 3) Establishing new quality networks to share expertise and link childcare providers with early intervention services. 4) Increasing the number of qualified early years special educational needs coordinators (SENCOs) to provide advice and support to childcare settings.
