About the Hub

Local Authorities covered:

Brighton and Hove, East Sussex, Isle of Wight, Kent, Medway, Surrey, West Sussex


Sharing the Government’s ambition to address the impact of the pandemic on young children, KEYSPH aims to support practitioners to further develop their high-quality teaching and learning to improve outcomes for children. 

Our experienced and knowledgeable partners are from PVI settings, a maintained nursery school and a childminder setting, many of us working in some of Kent’s most disadvantaged areas.  

The Hub’s lead nursery is managed by The Education People, which provides us with access to a range of other early years professionals who are skilled in supporting the early years sector. 

Our collective range of skills, knowledge and networks makes us well placed to share evidence-based practice messages using universal and targeted approaches such as newsletters, social media, webinars, networking opportunities and the provision of evidence-based programmes.
