Bi-Borough Schools HR Service
Bi-Borough Childcare and Early Education Service
We believe that only good quality experiences in early years and childcare will improve outcomes and close the gap for children and young people who are disadvantaged.
The EYCS places positive outcomes for children at the heart of their work and to this end work closely with settings to support them to have high expectations of children and to develop their learning.
Good quality early years and childcare provision can have a significant impact on children’s development, performance at school and their future life chances. It is important that the childcare workforce have the necessary knowledge, skills and understanding to support children’s learning. Furthermore, it is essential that the workforce constantly seek to develop their skills and understanding that in turn will have a positive impact on the early education they provide.

We can help children to develop a love of reading for pleasure and information, enabling you to maximise their potential.
Early Help - Kensington and Chelsea
Early Help has delivered support to families in the borough for a number of years. Ofsted described the Early Help service as ‘exemplary’ as part of the wider Ofsted inspection that rated Kensington and Chelsea's Children’s Services as Outstanding in 2017. Our practitioners are trained in evidence-based Systemic Family Therapy, have access to ongoing training for supporting change in families and are fully integrated into the wider Children’s Services network in the borough.
As such our practitioners have excellent local knowledge, great partnership working with local services, full access to social work case files so they are able to understand the history and context of families if they have been known to Children’s Services in the past. This means we are in an excellent position to offer children and families coordinated support to ensure improvement in outcomes for the family.
