Re-opening Ofsted Registered Childcare and Free Early Education provision from 1 June 2020

The significant majority of Ofsted registered early years settings in the Borough have advised that they intend to open from week commencing Monday 1 June 2020. The local authority would like to take this opportunity to thank you and your staff  for your ongoing commitment to providing quality early education and childcare to the children of Waltham Forest and your continued dedication, compassion and care in providing this critical service across our community during what we recognise will be an anxious time.

Re-opening information for providers, parents and carers is available is available on the Councils website as well as the Waltham Forest Children and Family Centre Facebook page.

This includes details on phased opening, children that should be prioritised for a place, demand for and capping places and children attending only one setting. We would recommend that you familiarise yourself with this information to ensure your re-opening plans are in line with this.
