Pre-schools, nurseries and childminders

We support practitioners in pre-schools, nurseries and child-minding to promote the health and wellbeing of children and families in their care and meet requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage.


We offer periodic training on a range of health topics relevant to the early years. Our training is advertised in the Early Years team training directory. Topics cover food and nutrition, physical development, mental health and health protection


We offer e-learning courses on the virtual learning environment. These are accessible to early years practitioners with a login.


You can borrow the healthy eating box, dental health box and hand washing machine free of charge. Contact any of these libraries to make a booking: Bradley Stoke, Hanham, Kingswood, Thornbury and Yate
