Tulip Siddiq MP, Labour’s Shadow Minister for Children and Early Years, responding to a survey by PACEY showing that thousands of childminders are left out of the Government’s financial support schemes and 40% are not confident their business will survive the coronavirus crisis, said:

“This worrying survey is further evidence that the childcare sector is on the brink of collapse. Thousands of nurseries and childminding businesses fear they will not survive this crisis, and hundreds of thousands of childcare places could be lost forever unless the Government steps in with a proper funding plan for early years.”
