The Government is putting in place legislation to remove the requirement with Ofsted that schools must register separately their early years provision for two-year-olds.
Subject to the approval of Parliament, this should come into effect in September 2015.
The aim is to make it easier for schools to offer early years provision for two-year-olds, whether they already have a provision or are considering setting one up.
Childcare minister Sam Gyimah said in an open letter to schools (PDF) on government reforms: “Crucially, we are working to remove the need for schools to register their provision for two-year-olds separately with Ofsted. As this change will be in place for September 2015, I wanted to give you sufficient notice to begin your planning now.”
