As an Early Years and Childcare Charter member, the Charter Member forum is a termly meeting where practitioners who work within the Early Years and Childcare sector can come together to discuss and share best practice examples about how they are working towards the Charter principles, what works well, the impact of being a member of the Charter and any further support required.

This term's forum will also be beginning to think about next steps for Year 2 of the Charter and progress of settings so far.  Please direct your settings/schools to book their place by visiting the Education Essex online booking system and search using the course name ‘Early Years and Childcare Charter forum’.
