Early years in lockdown – the impact in numbers
The first results have been released from Ceeda’s Covid-19 data portal. They show 33% of day nurseries and pre-schools and 52% of childminders are open to vulnerable children and families, as the battle against COVID-19 continues. Figures show low numbers of children attending, averaging 1.43 key worker children per day across open childminder settings last week, and a median of 4 in nurseries and pre-schools.

About Early Years
A robust sector research programme
From delivery costs to workforce challenges, the comprehensive About Early Years research programme was launched in 2017 by independent EY research experts, Ceeda. We produce evidence and insight to inform early years policy and practice, both at a national level and within individual settings.
Research is conducted across the year with a representative panel of registered day nurseries, pre-schools and childminders in England. Working with a sector-led advisory group, the programme delivers timely, relevant analysis you can use with confidence.
Get involved and join the panel, you will enjoy tailored analysis to support your planning and inform policy direction too.
