Teach Early Years Awards 2022 winners announced

  • Teach Early Years Awards 2022 winners announced

The Teach Early Years Awards are a celebration of our sector’s educational and professional development resources, helping early years providers to find high-quality products.

Each year, we put the call out for the best early years resources across the key categories of communication, language & literacy; CPD; creative play; early exploration; happy & healthy; and picture books.

The 2022 shortlist featured a wide range of innovative resources and our expert panel of judges put these finalists to the test to select the winners for each category, taking into account effectiveness, value for money, originality and accessibility.

With a winner and two highly commended resources in each category, there’s plenty of inspiration for early years settings! You can find the full list of Teach Early Years winners below and view the full shortlist in each category here.

Don’t forget to also take a look at the Teach Primary and Teach Secondary Awards 2022 winners.
