NEWS: Political parties challenged by Early Education and Childcare Coalition in England

This week, the Early Education and Childcare Coalition (EECC), formed by more than 30 organisations and charities across England, have come together with one united voice calling on the government and all political parties to prioritise early years education and childcare at the next general election. 

The EECC has been co-founded by leading voices and experts, including Save The Children, PACEY, TUC, National Children’s Bureau, The Federation of Small Businesses, The Fatherhood Institute, The Early Years Alliance, UNICEF, Pregnant Then Screwed and many more. The Coalition is committed to establishing an early education and childcare system that works for all children, parents and the economy.

PACEY Chief Executive, Helen Donohoe said:

Now more than ever, it is critical for us to unite as one voice for the future of our early education and childcare system. Through incredibly tough times, our sector has shown incredible resilience and dedication to the children and families that they work with and support. The current situation, however, is not sustainable. Decision makers in all parties and at all levels of government must now take notice that we are unified in our determination to transform our current system with a long-term properly funded vision that will truly give all children their very best start.
