Best Start - strategic early learning and school age childcare plan 2022 to 2026

The plan sets out how we will embed the benefits of our transformational investment in 1140 hours of high quality funded early learning and childcare. It also explains our approach to expanding our childcare offer over the next four years.

Next steps

This plan is a living document and we will provide updates on our progress towards delivering these priorities over the course of this Parliament. These will reflect new evidence, and what we have learned from communities, stakeholders and experts about how to put our policies into action to deliver the best possible outcomes for children and families.
