Detail of feedback received
Summary of consultation responses.
The government values local authorities’ important role as ‘champions’ of disadvantaged children and their families. We want local authorities to focus on ensuring that all 2-, 3- and 4-year olds, particularly the most disadvantaged, take up their entitlement to funded high-quality early education.
This consultation seeks views on the specific reforms to the role of local authorities in early education and childcare. It offers you the opportunity to influence the secondary legislation and statutory guidance, which will implement changes to the local authority role.
