The department does not set pay and conditions for the early years workforce, which is predominantly made up of private and voluntary sector businesses. However, the mean average salary of full-time nursery nurses employed in all state funded schools in each of the past 5 years is provided in the following table. The source of this information is the School Workforce Census which is an annual survey collected in November each year. Salaries are rounded to the nearest £100.
