Schools encouraged to take 2-year-olds to tackle childcare crisis
Steven SwinfordSchools will be encouraged to take children as young as two to help solve the country’s child care crisis.
Liz Truss, the education minister, is writing to every council in England to suggest that school nurseries should extend their opening hours to allow parents to leave toddlers during the working day.
The Government is also introducing legislation to reduce red tape and make it easier for schools to open their doors to two-year-olds.
Ministers believe that opening up the system will help provide tens of thousands more child care places, which are urgently needed in many areas.
