The Early Years South West Stronger Practice Hub is committed to supporting Covid-19 recovery, sharing evidence-based and effective practice, growing local networks and supporting system leadership in the early years sector.

Within our Hub, we have a Head of EY Hub: an experienced EY professional leader; an area SENDco: an experienced SENDco with a special school background; a project manager; an administrator, finance officer, an outdoor learning specialist and a speech and language therapist. 

We are working from Plym Bridge Nursery School and have access to training room facilities as well as being able to offer online networking sessions to the wider region.

Our vision is to enable the EY workforce in the South West region to be more confident and empowered to ensure that young children in their care have the best possible start in life so they achieve and thrive.
