    Default 30 hours funding challenge

    A challenge has been lodged against the Govt to the Competition and Markets Authority saying that they are under funding the sector and abusing their legislative powers.

    While this is nursery-driven it will benefit childminders if it proves successful.

    Thank you for the link Sarah.

    I did read it but I'm not sure I totally understand it! Anything that puts a spanner in the works has got to be a good thing though

    Yes please 'remove the word free and allow the funding to be used as a subsidy'.

    Thank you Sarah for sharing.
