Early Years Network

Early years network

Research into early years provision consistently shows that education in the first years of life is a critical determinant of children’s futures.

Nursery teacher with childrenOur early years network supports all our members who work in that field, whether in a private nursery, a children’s centre, as an inspector or lecturer or any other professional role.

We encourage those members to learn from other practitioners and professionals in their field.

Prospect believes that your work and qualifications should be valued, and we strive to engage in dialogue with key decision-makers in both government and opposition parties to secure proper recognition of your important roles, now and in the future.

Prospect exists to make our members’ working lives run more smoothly. We promote fair working practices so that everyone in early years can focus on the care and education of children.
