NDNA in England

We’re representing you on a local and national level

We work with our members in England to represent the sector to government, local authorities and the media, to make sure the voice of nurseries in England is heard loud and clear.

We’ve contributed to the development of childcare policy and practice through strategic policy and planning groups, consultation events and stakeholder meetings with nurseries, gathering and analysing the impact of government policies, guidance and passing on best practice.

We have built over 44 NDNA networks to allow nursery providers to share experiences and establish a collective voice to ensure their views can be heard by local authorities and other organisations.

If you’d like to join NDNA and make sure your views are heard, go to our membership pages and choose the right one for you.
