LETTER: Childcare system doesn’t work

THE childcare system in England isn’t working for families.

We all want a childcare system that is affordable and easy to use, so parents can access the nursery hours they need and have the choice to go back to work, and one that delivers the best possible start for children.

But right now, hundreds of thousands of parents aren’t getting the help they should be.

It’s a battle for mums, dads, and caregivers to get the support they’re entitled to.

The costs are too high, and simply figuring out the support that’s on offer is a nightmare.

It’s time to push for a childcare system that gives parents choices and children the chance to build a better future.

That’s why I’m supporting Save the Children’s campaign and calling on the government to make childcare work for everyone.

Please add your voice to the campaign and sign the petition at https://www.savethechildren.org.uk/what-we-do/uk-work/early-years.
