Nurseries raise doubts over government childcare promises

A government scheme to expand the amount of funding for childcare in England begins to roll out this week. Some working parents of 2-year olds are now able to access 15 hours of support.

From September this will be expanded to children aged between 9 months and 2 years old. But the nurseries themselves are raising doubts about whether the government’s promises can be met.
