About the Early Years Childcare Service

Early Years Childcare Service (EYCS) are part of the Children, Young People and Families Portfolio, and are responsible for helping to deliver the government’s childcare strategy throughout Sheffield.

We work within the new Service Districts, which bring together local services to focus on locally agreed priorities - contact the Sheffield 0-19 Partnership to find out more.

Our responsibilities fall under four main areas - to maintain the city’s childcare places, to fund and ensure there’s enough nursery education for eligible three and four year-olds, to help develop the childcare workforce, and to deliver the city’s Children’s Centres.

Childcare services, children's events and activities are listed in the Sheffield Directory.
