National Sure Start Month

This June marks the fourth National Sure Start Month.

National Sure Start Month will celebrate Sure Start’s achievements and the services it offers to families throughout England, under the theme ‘Celebrating early years and childcare'. Celebrations during the Month are all about making more parents, families and communities aware of Sure Start.

Sure Start offers young children and their families the services they need, including childcare integrated with early education, health services, advice for parents and help to access training and work.

During June, thousands of local events and open days are planned to celebrate all that is good in childcare, early education, health and family support. And these events will help parents to find out about the support available on their doorstep. 

Registered childminders, playgroups, day nurseries, Sure Start Children’s Centres, parent advisers, health workers, libraries, Children's Information Services and staff from Jobcentre Plus in your local authority will work together to let parents know more about the services available to them in their area.
