Nurseries

Early years childcare is one of the most underfunded and undervalued sectors in the UK.

Nursery staff work long hours, for low wages, with the average worker being paid £7.42 an hour. Many working a second job to make ends meet.

There is a high turnover of staff. In 2020, a report found that 37% of nursery staff leave within two years.

This means a lack of consistency for the young children who crucially need it.

How can we expect children to feel settled and well adjusted in these uncertain times if their caregivers are constantly coming and going?

Now, more than ever, we need to find sustainable solutions to support this historically tight-margin sector.

Recovering
Together

During the pandemic, there was an increased pressure for nurseries to take extra safety precautions. These are, of course, expensive. Unfortunately, the chancellor didn’t include any extra funding for nurseries  in their budget last March, nor did they prioritise them for the vaccine roll-out. If we’re going to recover, we need to support the sectors which nurture our children and shape the future of our nation.
