What is Threads of Success?

Kent County Council’s Early Years and Childcare Service is committed to supporting excellence across the whole range of Early Years, school and out of school childcare provision, including early education.  To do this to best effect, we have developed Threads of Success, which is an easily accessible framework of services and products, dedicated to ensuring excellence and meeting the early education and childcare related needs of children, young people and families.
