Updated statutory guidance for early education and childcare - England.

This statutory guidance from the Department for Education is for English local authorities on their duties pursuant to section 2 of the Childcare Act 2016 and sections 6, 7, 7A, 9A, 12 and 13 of the Childcare Act 2006. Local authorities must have regard to this guidance when seeking to discharge those duties. They should not depart from it unless they have good reason to do so.

From 1 September 2018 it will supersede the current statutory guidance (which came into effect from 1 September 2017).
