Consultation on proposed changes to nursery provision and early years services

Camden’s Cabinet has agreed to the Council consulting on proposals for our early years services to provide a greater focus on children’s crucial first 1001 days of life (birth to two years old).

This consultation started on 2 January and it will close on 12 February. You can find and take part in the consultation here.

A report to the Cabinet meeting on 13 November outlined the Council's proposed new approach, which would aim to narrow the gap of achievement and wellbeing between disadvantaged children and others in the borough.

The changes would also aim to address the high level of vacancies in Council-run nurseries and school nurseries - making better use of capacity in local primary schools and helping those schools to recruit more nursery pupils.
