The Early Years Alliance has teamed up with Ceeda to launch an urgent survey on the impact of Covid-19 on the safety and sustainability of early years settings.
This survey will provide vital up-to-date information on key data like the number of recent Covid-19 cases in early years settings among both staff and children, and changes in occupancy levels during national lockdown. It also gives all providers the chance to share their views on access to testing in the early years, access to provision during lockdown, and calls for the early years sector to be prioritised for vaccinations.
As many providers as possible are required to respond to this survey to provide the strongest possible evidence base to use in ongoing discussions with the Government.

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.
