#UnsungHeroes aims to shine a positive light on the childcare sector and beyond in the middle of the Coronavirus pandemic. While there are some obvious heroes through this uncertain time, we want to highlight those who may be forgotten, including childcare professionals, and give everyone an opportunity to thank their #UnsungHeroes. 


Open or closed, childcare professionals are caring for the next generation and during the coronavirus outbreak have continued to support the development of the early years. Those open for children of key workers and vulnerable children are not only ensuring their children's continued safety but are enabling those parents to continue to go to work. Settings that are closed continue to communicate with their parents and children to maintain a relationship and continue their learning. This is what we want to celebrate. 

Share if your setting is open

If your setting is open at the moment for vulnerable children, or children of key workers, let others know. You can download and print our A4 posters below and share in your setting. Stick them on your window and share on social media using the hashtag, #UnsungHeroes - we'd love to see!
