Early Years Policy work

​​​​​​​​Optimising early childhood education and childcare

In 2023, the Government of Jersey commissioned the ISOS Partnership to collect evidence of best practice in early childhood education. This evidence is being used to shape future policy. 

The report focused on the big picture questions. These relate to the why, what, when, where, who, and how of early childhood education and care in Jersey.

The full report is available on Evidence paper on optimising early childhood education and childcare (ECEC)​.

This report builds on the previous work of the Early Years Policy Development Board.​

Early years roundtables

Following the ISOS report, this Government met with a range of stakeholders about future policy in Jersey. 

2 roundtable meetings which took place on 15 and 16 November, included representatives from:

  • ​​parents and carers
  • early education and childcare sector
  • employers
  • public health
  • charities who support to parents and families
  • Government of Jersey officers​

2 further roundtable events took place in January 2024. 

The findings of this report will be used to shape future early years policy work.
