I am a PhD researcher at the Institute of Education, UCL, exploring the impact that the 30 hours of funded early education is having on settings, staff, children and families. I am looking broadly at how the policy is impacting on workload, finances, children's learning and development and so on. If you work in a school nursery and offer both the universal 15 hours and extended 30 hours of funded provision, I would really like to talk to you about your experiences. Please e-mail me at email@example.com if you are interested. Many thanks.
Suggest you contact the group Champagne Nurseries Lemonade Funding. The impact of 30 hours is bringing daycare and Pre School settings to their knees and forcing many to close. Parents are being misled that it is free, when many settings are having to charge for some resources and restrict availability of funded places.
