I can't believe what I am reading....

1. childcare is not free but a subsidy by providers already struggling with sustainability
2. if a shortage is predicted why are thousands of cms still facing barriers from their LAs to be included in the funding?
3. can this be allowed to happen without support from those who have influence or represent us and with the DfE not intervening and making it clear to the LAs what their 'statutory duty' now is?

I feel a call to Nursery World coming on...4365 and anyone else ...do you agree?
