BAND Development and Support team continue to support providers to develop new childcare places across the city by implementing any new initiatives that would lead to the need for development, as well as supporting small independent providers to open.

This support can be in the form of premises advice, financial and business planning, sustainability, Ofsted registration information, guidance on Welfare and Safeguarding requirements from the EYFS, policy development and opening procedures.

We are also involved in looking at sufficiency of places within Bristol, helping the City Council to ensure there are enough childcare places to meet the needs of parents across the city.
