The challenges for us as childcare professionals are many and varied.


  • We need to reduce exclusions from nurseries and children’s centres.
  • We are tasked with reducing the number of unplanned pregnancies.
  • We need to reduce the incidence of drug and/or alcohol misuse and/or risky behaviour.
  • We want to secure successful adoptive placements.
  • We want to improve the educational outcomes for children in care.
  • We want all vulnerable children to have the best possible chance of being successful learners.
