Early Years Business Support

PAG continues to support local authorities, individual childcare providers, and other settings with business modelling and sustainability support with our early years business support service. This work is conducted through a bespoke range of services including mentoring, business planning, and compliance with regulatory requirements. PAG helps clients create a culture of continuous quality improvement. PAG and its consultants have supported hundreds of early years businesses to survive and thrive in this challenging market.

    30 hours childcare

    Since the introduction of '30 hours', PAG has worked in partnership with local authorities and individual childcare providers to ensure there are sufficient, sustainable places available for parents/carers. Working remotely and on-site, our business modelling and sustainability support has been responsible for creating hundreds of additional places.

    PAG can also support local authorities who wish to sustain or boost localised funded/free entitlement for 2 year old places. Our work has helped childcare providers prosper while supporting local authorities to meet their statutory obligations to provide sufficient places.

    Quality Improvement and Compliance Service

    Our Quality Improvement and Compliance service is managed by the same experienced personnel and can provide leadership and management support around improving the quality and consistency of early years and out of school childcare provision(s). This includes thorough mentoring, business strategies, compliance with regulatory requirements, and creating an inherent culture and legacy of continuous quality improvement.

    Business Modelling and Sustainability

    PAG's Business Modelling and Sustainability consultancy is managed by team members who own and manage their successful daycare provisions themselves. This gives them first-hand knowledge and experience of the challenges and issues that the early years and out of school childcare sectors face.

    The PAG team is also highly experienced in working with registered childminders. PAG supports clients with business planning, marketing, sufficiency strategies, and improving income generation. By increasing turnover and improving profits, our work contributes towards sector sustainability.

    "PAG was commissioned by London Borough of Hounslow to carry out a 30 Hours Sufficiency Assessment. They had a professional approach, listened carefully to our requirements, engaged extensively with our providers, gave regular updates on progress and were responsive to requests to further develop data as required. The final report contributed to planning for the sufficiency of 30 hour places in Hounslow."
