During the last year Early Years Wales has been engaged in developmental discussions within wider stakeholder groups, and the Welsh Government, to update and refresh the ECEC approach in Wales. In line with other policy developments, in Wales this model of working with children aged 0-5 will be called Early Childhood Play, Learning, and Care (ECPLC).

The ECPLC approach will support practitioners to consider their practice and the ECPLC Quality Framework aims to support practitioners, leaders, schools, LA’s and parents with a shared understanding of the various requirements needed to provide high quality childcare, learning and play for children in early years.

We will be joined by David Dallimore and Rhiannon Page, Welsh Government who will explore the Importance of Early Childhood Education and Care and how the framework aligns with other curricula and professional frameworks, and the opportunities available to members to help the Welsh Government shape the future direction of this policy implementation.
