Halton Healthy Early Years (HHEYS)

Halton Early Years settings (a setting may be a nursery, pre-school, childminder or children's centre) play an important role in supporting the health and wellbeing of children and families. Halton Healthy Early Years Status is based on a whole setting approach to social, physical and emotional health and wellbeing.

HHEYS will provide a foundation for your setting to systematically develop and improve health outcomes, and embed them in the culture of your setting. HHEYS is not just about your setting but also the wider community. This HHEYS framework will help you to assess and establish a healthy culture and ethos in policies, planning and with children, families and staff. HHEYS is a FREE award for Halton settings and enables you to access a wide range of free training and support from The Health Improvement Team. A supplementary evidence file is not needed.
