Childcare changes threatened by underfunding, charity says – BBC News

Who do you believe? The Conservatives – as reported here:

Childcare providers in England say the system is at “breaking point” due to underfunding and a plan to double free provision could lead to “meltdown”.

That warning – from industry body the Pre-School Learning Alliance – comes as ministers say trials of the new scheme are being brought forward to 2016.

The current allowance of 570 hours a year for three and four-year-olds will be doubled for working parents.

The government says it is committed to increasing funding.

    If this is retrospective,like the Bedroom tax it will cause a lot of damage.People who have children already would have not seen this coming.Who will suffer?The children of course.

    I read the usual right wing rubbish about fags,booze and bingo.Do they not realise that these people have relatives.I was on a good wage in the early eighties and often took my then unemployed brother for a night out.He has paid me back in many ways over the years.

    I wonder how this will work,if say some children have left school and are working,would the younger children still be deemed to be extra children.Like mother has four children with two in school and two that have left.I guess with the Tories it would be she still has four children in claimant terms.

    I would think Chomsky is spot on. Like the NHS, underfund and then it isn’t working so it is ready to be sold off.

    Is there anything that cannot be packaged and sold for profit??? I was reading in the NYT about how this is being done with homelessness and addicts.

    Horrifying.
