DUP seeks feedback on childcare support and provision

He said:

 

“The DUP wishes to see a long-term approach to childcare that can deliver:

·      That all parents have access to good quality and affordable childcare for their children.

·      We ensure parents can access, stay and progress in paid work and in turn contribute to our economy in Northern Ireland.

·      That all types of childcare providers are enabled to provide high quality and accessible childcare, and the childcare workforce is valued.

 

To this end we are beginning a substantial consultation on the approaches the DUP should support and implement at all levels of government – Westminster, Assembly and Councils. I encourage those organisations and communities interested in this topic to engage with our Policy Unit in the coming weeks and months and ensure their views are heard.”
