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 Pathway Fund is administered under contract by Early Years – the Organisation for Young Children 
The application process for 2020/21 has concluded and successful settings are delivering their projects in new and innovative ways due to Covid-19.  

Early Years can be contacted at:
