NDNA responds to Universal Credit announcement

National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA) has responded to the government announcement of an extra £300m for childcare support in Universal Credit, which will help 80,000 families.

 
PRLog - Oct. 7, 2011 - HUDDERSFIELD, U.K. -- Purnima Tanuku OBE, Chief Executive of NDNA, said: “This announcement will be welcomed by the childcare sector. Providers understand the needs of working parents and aim to offer services that are flexible. These reforms will help the 80,000 parents who currently do not receive help with childcare costs because they work less than 16 hours per week.

“There is often talk of childcare being too expensive but providers have to charge what they do to ensure they can invest in their staff, maintain high staffing ratios and provide high-quality care and early education. The focus should be on parents receiving the right help to be able to afford quality care, and this boost in support is a positive step towards this.

“We look forward to future announcements about the government’s new Universal Credit. Any further changes must ensure that work always pays for parents, however many hours they are working.”
