The Pathway Fund was introduced from 1 April 2016 and focuses on the provision of early years
education and learning services for children aged 0-4 years.

The Fund aims to improve the development of children who are at risk of not reaching their full potential within the school system. Through the provision of funding, we also aim to enhance the Early Years sector and make it more sustainable.

The application process for 2019/20  is underway and details can be found on the ‘Early Years’ website. 

Applications for Stream A and B were launched on 3 January 2019. The closing date for fresh applications is as follows:
Stream A – 4 February 2019
