The Department for Education is partway through a consultation exercise on changes planned for Sure Start Children's Centre's, if you wish to respond to the proposals then you must do so by the 1st June 2012. The consultation period is shorter than for most similar exercises and is looking for feedback on draft statutory guidance relating to Sure Start centres.
Sure Start Children's Centres are places managed by or on behalf of local authorities to ensure children's services are offered in an integrated way. Children's services might be made available onsite but if not, advice and assistance should be given to obtain children's services. Early years provision covers early education and childcare. Children's services include social services, health services, training and employment advice and information for young children, parents and prospective parents.
The aims of Sure Start Centres are to open equal access to opportunities and education to all from an early age so that children reach a level playing field by the time that they reach school. The centres particularly target more deprived communities who may not have access to such good facilities to help educate and nurture young children prior to reaching school.
Anyone is entitled to respond to the proposed changes, even if you aren't engaged in offering professional services to the young or parents. If you would like your voice to be heard then put forward your view on the Department for Education's consultation website.
