Earlier this month, Morrisons supermarket announced a 10% discount for teaching staff, including those working in early years education. PACEY is disappointed to hear that childminders have been unable to access this discount, despite making up a large and important element of the early years workforce.
In response to concerns raised by our members we have therefore written to David Potts, Chief Executive Officer at Morrisons. In the letter we highlight the important role of childminders and request that all registered early years providers, including childminders, are able to access the discount scheme. This would be a welcome recognition of their hard work supporting families during what has been a difficult and turbulent year.
