The Early Years Sector is a wide and diverse place. From childminders, pack away pre schools, maintained nursery schools, family centres, day nurseries, primary schools, charities, and further and higher education settings training the workforce of tomorrow. There are organisations that represent the entire sector across the globe-and one thing connects us all: Our passion and commitment to giving each and every child the very best start.
Keeping Early Years Unique is proud to stand shoulder to shoulder with our colleagues across the sector and across the globe. One way we are doing this is by playing our part in the Early Years Coalition as well as working with other organisations.
Read more about the Early Years Coalition here . Here is why we took action:
"In July 2018, the DfE published what they presented as a review of the Early Learning Goals (ELGs) but was in fact a comprehensive rewrite of the EYFS Statutory Framework, including the Educational Programmes for each Area of Learning. Many in the early years sector were surprised that such an extensive process of change had been embarked upon with very little engagement with sector representatives and experts. "

We cannot be ignored.
We will not be ignored.
We will be heard.

We have the evidence and the research.
We are the people on the ground.
We can make a difference wherever we are and whatever we do.
We are not alone.
