NCT response to the Family and Childcare Trust's annual childcare costs survey

Released on: 19 February 2015

Responding to the findings of the Family and Childcare Trust’s annual childcare costs survey, Elizabeth Duff, Senior Policy Adviser, NCT, said:

“Many parents tell us they struggle with rising childcare costs so these results are no surprise. The first two years are a particularly difficult period for new parents who have returned to work as they do not yet benefit from the statutory 15 hours a week of free early education.

"NCT calls on all political parties to commit to making 15 hours of free childcare available to parents as soon as they choose to return to work.”
