The DfE has published a model agreement outlining the information local authorities should include in their agreements with early years providers.
The model agreement is for:
- local authorities
- early years providers, including:
- early years providers and childminders registered on the Ofsted early years register
- childminders registered with a childminder agency that is registered with Ofsted
- independent schools and academies taking children age 2 and over and which are exempt from registration with Ofsted as an early years provider
