About the consultation process

Feedback from the early years sector is fundamental to the Coalition’s approach to developing the guidance. This is taking place in three stages.

  • October 2020 – A survey of the sector about what practitioners want from the guidance – read the summary of what you said, and how we will respond to it
  • December 2020 – A consultation on the first draft of the Birth to 5 Matters guidance – participate in the consultation (closed 11 January 2021)
  • February 2021 – A consultation on the second draft of the guidance.

The final version of Birth to 5 Matters will be published at the end of March 2021.
