Middlesbrough’s School Readiness team work with families who have children aged 0-5 years in a number of ways which are briefly outlined below:
- Help children become ready for nursery and primary school.
- Access good quality childcare, including free early education for two, three and four year olds (A2YO, NEG, 30 hr).
- Support childcare settings in terms of the quality and standard of their settings. We have staff who work closely with settings on their safeguarding, policies and procedures etc. and we have two qualified teachers who work with settings to increase their Ofsted rating.
There are eight Children’s centres in Middlesbrough: further information on activities/ sessions/ timetables and contact details can be found here.
