On 6th June a petition was set up calling on the Government to scrap More Great Childcare – and to consult with everyone involved before publishing alternative proposals.
It is hope that the petition will gain the support of parents, early years practitioners, early years experts, health professionals, teaching professionals, membership organisations – in fact people for all areas of society who care about the children of this country – both this generation and future generations.
However it is not enough to just ask for the Government to scrap More Great Childcare and to consult, we need to be proactive in supporting the Government to come up with workable ideas that are financially viable, based on research – and in the best interests of the children.
So the idea of this section is to provide EVERYONE with the opportunity to put forward their ideas.
To try and keep some sort of order to the ideas – in this section there is a page for as many different groups of people that have been thought of – but if you think other groups need adding please say so – and they will be added.
The idea is that you add your ideas to the comment section most appropriate to you. Please try not to ramble but to keep your points clear. For admin reasons please could everyone restrict themselves to a maximum of 10 points / ideas.
The comments will be printed, and all used to help inform the government. Hopefully it will also be possible to collate and produce a joint ‘vision’ with the ten most popular suggestions.
Thank You for your support and ideas
