Baby Boom Will Lead To Shortage Of Childcare Places
You are probably unaware of this but 2012 saw the highest level of births since 1970, nearly half a century! This statistic points to a massive shortage of free childcare places come the next general election in 2015, according to United For All Ages.
If you also take into consideration the latest drop in childcare places as reported by Ofsted, then the above seems almost inevitable.
Ofsted’s latest figures revealed a 4,913 reductions in places in the 6 months to the end of March 2013. The same figures also showed there were 1,054 fewer registered providers.
The latest baby boom is not all bad news with benefits for the British economy, but plans need to be put in place to cope with the increase, as Denise Burke, Director of United For All Ages explains…
“The new baby boom is great news for families and potentially for the British economy. But without sufficient childcare, we won’t be giving all these children a good start in life and helping their parents to work.
“Parents already face the highest childcare costs in Europe. Now it promises to become harder and harder for them to find a free early years place where they live.”
“Government and local authorities must act urgently to ensure that there are sufficient early years and childcare places across the country. Schools are already struggling to provide sufficient primary school places and are closing their nursery classes.”
“Failure to plan is planning to fail. We must not let down a generation who are so vital to the future and sustainability of our country.”
While the Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery network continues to expand nationwide, we are still actively looking to increase further as we are noticing a growth in demand. This means we are looking for ambitious, diligent individuals to be trained and supported in opening their own Monkey Puzzle Day Nursery Franchise.
