developing policy Guidance and Organisational Documents.
We draw on national and international evidence and research on pedagogy and policy and apply this in our local context. We work in collaboration with valued partners such as the Family Information Service, Early Help, Early Years SEND team, health colleagues, social care, and organisations such as the Warwickshire Early Years Hub and Adult and Community Learning.
We keep Warwickshire’s children at the heart of everything we do.
