Dudley Early Years’ Service has recently been through a remodel. The three teams across Early Years (Specialist Early Years’ Service, the Childcare Strategy Team and the Early Years Advisory Team  have come together to form the Integrated Early Years’ Service offering support to children and families in the Early Years.  

What do we offer?

The newly designed service is moving to a cluster-based model. The five multi-skilled teams will be based within the five clusters across the borough (Dudley North, Dudley Central, Brierley Hill, Stourbridge, and Halesowen - See model below) aligning with our Family Centres, this is so that the service can continue to be a visible presence in the community and allow the right support to be directed to children, families, and settings at the right time. 

The service offer is evolving quicky as we build and embed the new model. Packages of support to settings, parents and carers are currently being offered, these include a SEND helpline, topic-based workshops, face to face parent groups and Stay and Play sessions alongside support that is being developed  in collaboration with partner agencies.

We acknowledge that the changes will bring questions and queries as to how the new model will support all children, including children with additional needs. Support for children with additional needs will continue to be offered through the Integrated Early Years’ Service.
