The Pod is a not for profit member funded organisation dedicated to ensuring Early Education and Care Providers are supported in delivering the highest quality of care and learning environments for our children.
We aim to support and resource both not for profit and for profit Early Education and Care Services across the South West through professional development opportunities, networking, promotion of best practice and operational support. Whether you call our hotline for instant industry advice or require in depth assessment and rating guidance, our highly experienced consultants are here to help take the load off you.
Our business model is a concept that resulted from extensive research, consultancy and trialled methods of support within the Early Education and Care sector during the 2013 – 2015 Regional Community Child Care Development project. The inception of The Pod stemmed from the identified gaps and needs which impact the delivery of care throughout the South West and our services evolve to meet the ever changing needs of the industry.

- Assessment and rating check up
