How easy is it to find good quality, affordable care in the holidays?
When the schools break up for the summer, just how easy is it to find good quality childcare, without breaking the bank? The charity Daycare Trust says it’s getting harder – costs are rising and, in some areas, the number of places is falling. So, is enough being done to make good quality childcare, affordable and widely available?
Jenni talks to Beverley Hughes, Minister of State for Children, Young People and Families and to Alison Garnham from the Daycare Trust about the availability of childcare in the long summer holiday.
