COVID 19 Updates

Early Years

COVID-19  If you are a key worker and have recently been informed that your childcare provider in Newham has closed, please contact Kirsty.reed@newham.gov.uk to share your urgent childcare requirements.

There are a number of early education and childcare options to choose from in Newham; ranging from nurseries and playgroups to out of school play schemes for older children.

All providers follow the Statutory Framework for the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS), which sets the standards for learning, development and care for children from birth to five.

All Ofsted registered providers are graded according to the Education Inspection Framework and have a duty to meet learning and development requirements, as well as the safeguarding and welfare requirements for your child.

It is important to make the right choice for you and your child. The following sections provide information, advice and guidance in helping you to choose your childcare.  There is also information about the free early education entitlements which may be available to you as well as help with childcare costs.
