Policy product type: LGiU essential policy briefing

Published date: January 22, 2013

Author: Andrew Crompton

Issues covered:

  • childcare
  • disadvantaged areas
  • free early years entitlement
  • two-year olds

The Childcare Sufficiency and Sustainability in disadvantaged areas DfE research report considers the early years and childcare market in disadvantaged areas and the impact implementing the new statutory requirement to provide up to 15 hours a week of childcare for disadvantaged children from September 2013 onwards. It considers how local authorities (LAs) and providers act, and think about the future within that market, and what parental perspectives are. The paper focuses in particular on financial sustainability, and suggests that the role of LAs is important in disadvantaged areas, both in terms of quality and sustainability.
