The aim of the Early Years and Childcare Charter is to embed the vision from the Early Years and Childcare Strategy which sets out how we will help every child in Essex get the best start in life.

The Charter is a set of minimum principles that early years and childcare providers and partners working with families should meet.

This Charter is for all those working in the early years system:

- The Essex Child and Family Wellbeing Service
- Essex County Council
- Organisations / professionals working with children and their families.

You can sign up to become a member between November 2022 and September 2023.

Membership will be valid from the day your membership is confirmed until 31 December 2023.

You can opt out of being a Charter member at any time. If you would like to opt out, please email and we will remove you from our mailing list and send you an email to confirm your membership status has been removed.

What happens next

We will contact you within 4 weeks to confirm your membership status and send you your membership pack.
