More Affordable Childcare – a summary


Yesterday the Department for Eduction (DfE) published its ‘More Affordable Childcare’ document, which builds on the much discussed ‘More Great Childcare’ report published earlier this year.

This new document sets out the government’s plan to:

  • help families to meet the costs of childcare;
  • increase the amount of affordable provision; and,
  • give parents the right information so they can make informed choices about childcare.

This blog details the main points that we think are relevant to childminders across each of these three bullet points. If you want to know more, including the background to why the DfE believe that these plans are suitable, please download the ‘More Affordable Childcare’ from our DfE and Ofsted resources page.
