We are passionate about helping the youngest children get a great start to their education.

We know that Early Years education provides those all-important building blocks for children’s lifelong learning and educational achievement. That’s why we provide dedicated improvement services focused on Early Years education.

Why choose HFL?

We understand that there are distinct demands on Early Years education and that every school and setting is different. That’s why we offer customised improvement services, consultancy, training and continual professional development (CPD) for Early Years leaders and practitioners, including those in private, voluntary and independent (PVI) settings.

Whether you’re a leader, teacher, or Early Years practitioner our team of Early Years experts can provide tailored advice and guidance to help you achieve the best outcomes for your children possible.
