About this event

Formal childcare providers in the private and voluntary sectors - such as nurseries and childminders - are vital for many parents to work. They are also the major route through which the government's free early education entitlements are delivered. Covid-19 has the potential to devastate the financial viability of such childcare providers, with potential knock-on consequences for parents '- especially mothers' - ability to work, and perhaps also the government's ability to deliver its free early education entitlements. This event will discuss the challenges facing childcare providers and present new research on the impact of covid-19 on the early years childcare market in England.
