NCT response to NDNA survey on free nursery places

Released on: 14 January 2015

In response to the survey from the National Day Nurseries Association (NDNA) which found parents are paying for the underfunding of free nursery places in increased fees, Elizabeth Duff, Senior Policy Adviser, NCT said:

“It’s ridiculous that some parents who want to work are prevented from doing so because of the ever increasing cost of childcare. Recent NCT research has found that for the majority of new mums (77%) household finance is their main concern in their decision to go back to work.

“Politicians need to sit up and take action on an issue that is affecting thousands of families across the UK.”
