Early years

We provide a range of data and technology tools to help you understand and manage your early years services effectively.

Who we work with

We work with nurseries, schools, local authorities and Childrens Centre’s to measure the progress and impact of your children and services.

Understanding your performance

We analyse data from a range of sources to provide a comprehensive picture of the locality covering demographics, education, crime, health outcomes and more. We are able to provide targeted analysis to meet your specific requirements. We can provide insights at local authority, ward or Children’s Centre level. We can look at overall trends or focus on specific groups such as ethnic minorities or those experiencing deprivation.

We also have an interactive tool, DataPix, to enable you to drill down into your data to understand what is behind your headline messages.

Recording progress in early years

All early years providers have a statutory duty to assess and monitor the progress of their children against the EYFS framework. The EYFS Tracker helps you do this.

It is a web-based tool to provide a simple yet comprehensive system for recording and analysing children’s progress through the Early Years Foundation Stage, from birth to the end of the Reception year. It can be used in any early years setting. It has been used to track the progress of 10,000s of children in the UK and worldwide.

Why we are different

We use our proprietary data warehouse, the Mime DataHub, to process a huge range of education and demographic data. It powers our analysis and allows us to provide targeted insights to meet your specific requirements.

We are experts in communicating complex information with clarity and in a visually accessible manner. All our work meets this standard.
