West Sussex Early Years Settings COVID-19 Emergency Plan

Closed 23 Mar 2020

Opened 20 Mar 2020


Following the Government announcement on Wednesday of the closure of Early Years provision for all but the most vulnerable and the children of key workers, we are working to provide you with greater clarity and to ensure we can meet the needs for these families across the County.

Why We Are Consulting

It is important that we pull together in times of need an our aim is to support families who need childcare in West Sussex to be able to access the service they require within their local area. Please complete this very short survey to help provide us with a situational update across West Sussex and to help us co-ordinate childcare places and workforce across the County.

We envisage daily updates so we can monitor the situation and to have up to date information for parents/carers about which Settings are open or who have space for children, should the need arise to change settings at short notice.

If you need this information in an alternative format, please contact us using the details provided on the right.
