The Early Years and Childcare Publishing Partnership
and how it works:




The Developmental
Resources Publishing

For local authorities and other organisations, the philosophy of the partnership is simple - our aim is to try and help those in the early years and childcare sector to avoid reinventing the wheel when it comes to developing sources of information such as support publications and materials. 

The Early Years and Childcare Publishing Partnership was formed out of Harrow Publications, which was developed when the early years team at Harrow Council produced the first DevelopmentWheel™ with KMMD. Since then as more publications were developed through different partnerships working together, this new partnership evolved and it is now going from strength to strength.

The Early Years and Childcare Publishing Partnership develops publications for professional organisations, practitioners and parents/carers. The publications can then be 'branded' for organisations, children's centres or settings to have their 'own copies', or individual practitioners, childminders and parents can purchase individual off-the-shelf copies from stock. This is all done in the knowledge that these are professionally produced support materials, written and developed by specialist practitioners/professionals and designed and produced by KMMD. These publications can be 'customised' for other organisations and local authorities, by being branded with their logo and other details. It's a simple way of offering 'customised' publications to organisations working within the early years, childcare, health and family support sectors, thus saving development time, money and resources for everyone concerned.

If you represent an organisation that is looking to produce new materials, why not consider doing this through the partnership. Alternatively, you might have an idea for a new DevelopmentWheel™ that you can produce through the partnership. You will get your own copies of the publication and you will also benefit from the credibility this gives with your peer group members from other organisations who wish to have their own 'customised' copies of the publication you helped to develop... whilst also getting 'royalties' for the part you play in the production of the publication.

To discuss this further or to arrange a meeting, contact us

individual practitioners/professionals, childminders and parents/carers, we have copies of our publications available for purchase through our individual retail website. These are identical in terms of content, but are 'general' copies produced for individual use and not for a particular organisation.
