About Early Years Advocacy

Operating primarily in the Hampshire and neighbouring areas, Early Years Advocacy provides support in a range of ways to help you to either run your early years and childcare business, or if working in this field to develop your career and expertise.

Whether you are a business owner (nursery, pre-school, out of school childcare or crèche), committee member, manager, supervisor, member of staff or trainee, there will be a service that will be of interest to you.

Also if you are working towards an early years’ qualification or looking for promotion within your early years role and need some help or advice from an experienced and local ‘advocate’ I can help; someone that will listen to your needs, be approachable and ensure that the support provided is tailored to meet your specific needs.
