New Healthy Early Years London Award (HEYL) Framework

More information about the new Healthy Early Years London (HEYL) Framework will be released by the National Children's Bureau. We will update this section of this website as soon as more information is released.

Aims of the new framework include:

  • To align well to the EYFS and Healthy schools London
  • Reduce paperwork and workload (especially at Bronze level)
  • Ensure clear and structured progression through the levels, with each award building on previous work 

If you would like more information about the new HEYL criteria and templates, please email: hellohealthyearlyyears@hackney.gov.uk

Further updates about our local support for achieving the Healthy Early Years award will be included in the Family Information Service Early Years Update emails sent out to all registered daycare settings on a weekly basis.
