    Default Champagne nurseries...lemonade funding

    This video is being shared a lot...watch it and you can see why.

    It does refer only to nurseries ...as it is becoming normal everything seems to be nursery related while it is NOT ...but it will be the same for Cms....in fact our figures will be even worse

    Share it with parents if you will and share widely in the hope parents understand the conundrum about 'cost of childcare' ...as if it is not already in the news enough...and never again we hear 'free childcare'....there is no such thing!!

    Just realised that my 'lemionade' typo has lost its fizz....
    If nurseries can be champagne....can CMs be ' Prosecco' settings?
    Leaning towards my culture a bit I know but I like that!
    Champagne against Prosecco ...who wins?

    Pity they haven't included childminders and pre-schools - I think we'd have got behind it a lot more if they'd acknowledged we are struggling too

    They exclude CMs at their peril !....this is not about struggling ...it is about making this new scheme work and without CMs the fizz is definetely flat

    Is that Cider with Rosie Bunyip?

    Oh dear...I wonder if the fizz will disappear after this DfE announcement from our own Sam Gyimah!?

    I despair yet again...better get prepared for this!

    Thank you so much for sharing...please take a minute to look up your MP and send it to them too

    I am reading that many many providers are doing that...I have also sent it to Corbyn, Lucy Powell, Sharon Hodgson and Jenny Chapman who is the Shadow Childcare Minister....anyone you can think of is a 'target'.

    parents are also been sent the link by providers via their website or FB page...do that if you can....or email.
    It is certainly an eye opener to them and will inform them on what is to come....let's bust the myth about free childcare.

    If you are on FB do follow Champagne Nurseries Lemonade Funding as they now have a page there too

    If things are bad now they will only get worse with the 30 hours and the new guidance for LA...do take a minute to read the impositions made on providers even before we have responded to the consultation.

    Interesting enough, one of my local preschools is upping their paid for rate to be the same as their funding rate after Easter. This doesn't help with the champagne nursery, lemonade funding argument.

    I have had a letter in reply to my email from my MP this morning. A letter with the House of Commons seal arriving is always exciting.

    ( He began by congratulating me on my recent Outstanding grade! That will be a great quote on my website and in my references!!! )

    The wrote;

    'I was sorry to learn of the concerns you have about free childcare. I read your comments with interest and have written to the Parliamentary Under Secretary of State for Childcare and Education and have asked him to look into and respond to your concerns'. DrPhillip Lee MP
