Children aged up to five who are or are not attending an Early Years Provision may be eligible to access different pathways to support their learning, development and health needs. This page provides an outline of these pathways.
The Early Years Inclusion Pathway works with children between birth and five, who have additional needs, to develop their learning through play activities.
This pathway is delivered by Waltham Forest’s Early Years, Childcare and Business Development Service. The service will work in partnership with parents, carers and other professionals to plan and deliver a learning and development programme for individual children.
The aim of this pathway is to empower parents/carers to support their own child’s learning and development and to prepare children for starting at an early years provision (nursery, school nursery, preschool or childminder). For further information about the criteria and offer please visit the Early Years Inclusion Pathway Local Offer page.
