Letters: Childcare policy

Your editorial (3 September) calls for the government to put forward a coherent childcare strategy. Those in the sector couldn’t agree more. To date we’ve had Liz Truss’s flawed More Great Childcare and More Affordable Childcare policy documents. Both have met with widespread criticism and opposition from childcare professionals. The latest announcement, to extend free childcare places for two-year-olds next September, is laudable. But funding for these free places must be increased, otherwise there won’t be the places available in the areas they are most needed. A new national childcare strategy must look at ways of simplifying funding streams, making the most of money that is currently wasted. The cull of children‘s centres must stop – they could provide much needed childcare places for the new baby boom. And finally we must value those that provide care and early learning for our children. The strategy is key to Britain’s social and economic future.
