Comments on our performance 2006-07
Baseline figure was better than predicted. If BVPI targets are achieved LA will be on target to have an Early Years Professional (Graduate level 6) in every Full Day care setting by 2015 in line with the DfES target. Number of settings could fluctuate with turnover rates i.e.: open / closure of settings. Information was gained from both the Children's Information Service database and the Early Education Grant Funding database.
