Early Start - Our Journey

About Us

Early Start began in 2000, when it operated the local Sure Start programme in the London Borough of Newham developing Children’s Centres and support services for children and families.

As the needs of the community, and the direction of governments has changed, so to has our offer to families.

In 2012 we began the journey to becoming a social enterprise to make us financially self-sustaining, to develop Early Start Education as an Employee Trust and to continue our focus on high quality and customer service. In 2017, our organisation re-launched as The Early Start Group & Early Start Education Ltd.
