Childcare advice and guidance

Many families with children with disabilities will not require specialist early years provision because they will be sufficiently supported using universal services – these are services which are used by all children and families.

Access to good-quality early education and childcare helps children to learn, develop and play alongside other children.  Choosing the right childcare for your child early in their life can mean they have the right level of support to help them reach their potential throughout their childhood and beyond.
