Released on: 22 September 2014

The Labour party are promising to increase free childcare from 15 hours per week to 25 hours per week for the three and four year olds of working parents, with the support continuing into primary years.

NCT chief executive Belinda Phipps said:

"This is great news for working parents of three and four year olds. However, there are still large numbers of  parents who have to go back when their children are younger than three, who are still being hit by enormous childcare costs. It is important they are not forgotten and we see help for them too.”
