Based on the 2016 Survey of Childcare and Early Years Providers in England, we estimate that, excluding head teachers, senior managers and early years co-ordinators, 77% of group-based staff, 73% of nursery staff and 69% of reception staff were qualified to at least level 3. Again excluding head teachers, senior managers and early years co-ordinators, 7% of group based staff, 15% of nursery staff and 26% of reception staff were qualified to at least level 6. These figures include teaching staff, nursery nurses and other staff involved in the delivery of childcare and early years provision.’ The Survey is available online at:
