BESA published its Early Years Resourcing 2021 research report this month.



With significant changes in the way nurseries are operated and funded over recent years, this review considers changes that may impact resource budgeting and procurement since the last report in 2013.The report examines the way the market place is changing and the resulting implications for product purchasing, supplier engagement and technology preferences. Over 600 private group-based and school-based establishments responded. All responses are from subscribers to the National Education Research Panel (NERP) operated by C3 Education.

The outcomes provide your company with insights covering:

  • how many private and school-based nurseries there are in England
  • how much they spend on resources
  • where spending reductions occurred in 2020
  • how they find out about suppliers

This data will help you to better understand the current Early Years market. It will also provide invaluable data to help identify and shape business development opportunities.

Join Richard Connor (Author and Managing Partner at C3 Education) for an hour as he presents a walk-through of the results.
