Cost of childcare consultation
The government has launched a consultation on the cost of providing childcare.
Following the publication of Childcare Bill which will give effect to the government pledge to increase the free entitlement for working parents from 15 hours to 30 hours, the government launched a consultation on the cost of providing childcare.
ISC responded to the consultation and is working with the Department’s policy team and stakeholder group. Schools that have particular comments they would like ISC to make to DfE are invited to send these to email@example.com.
