Ooh, just watching Newsnight, and apparently changes to childcare including introduction of new higher ratio's (more children per adult) which seemed to be pretty much done and dusted as were referred to in Queen's speech today are actually still under consideration for "signing off" by Nick Clegg and the LibDems. Good for him too if he's not happy to sell our children short in terms of the quality of their vital early years education. All very interesting. And surely we need a Mumsnet thread to discuss ?
Yes, I think you're right boxer & have just posted similar on the other thread. I think the political aspect of this is very interesting as well as more specifically the outcomes for children in the early years and the implications for those who work with young children (as I do)
Beginning to set out their different stalls already ? And seeing this as an important enough issue to take a stand on ? Very interesting.
