Increase funding for early years settings

Petition Details

We believe Government funding for early years settings is too low, and making it difficult to keep these settings open. This will only be more difficult with the increase in minimum wage. Everyone wants childcare standards high, but we believe more funding is needed to achieve this.

Additional Information

Some early years settings, especially in deprived areas, rely on early years funding to pay staff, bills and maintain high standards and with the increase in minimum wage some of these businesses may struggle to remain open.

Additional Government funding for early years settings should help reduce the pressures on these settings, and we believe is desperately needed.
