30 hours 'Free' childcare roll-out today


The full roll-out 'happened' today with providers and parents waiting to see what the impact will be on them once the 30 hours entitlement kicks in. Both PLA and NDNA have been working hard securing press coverage and explaining how the scheme is supposed to work and how it is shaping up in reality. You can read their press pieces from these links: Preschool Learning Alliance and NDNA. This piece in The Financial Times reads well and sets out both sides of the argument very clearly: There’s no such thing as a free lunch — or free childcare.
