The general election poses an exciting opportunity for radical reform of our childcare and early years sector, something that is desperately needed if we are to give our children the best possible future, whilst closing the gender pay gap, and improving our economy.
- How can the next Labour government best deliver a modern and affordable childcare system that supports families from the end of parental leave to the end of primary school?
- How should Labour ensure that a new childcare system helps to tackle child poverty?
- How can Labour ensure that their commitment to childcare and early learning secures votes from parents after the Government’s recent pledge to working parents of 30 hours of funded childcare from 9 months old?
These are big questions that require a serious, thoughtful response which is why we are thrilled to have the opportunity to contribute to this independent review; something we have also campaigned for for years.
