Teaching in England: Early years education 'facing changes'
September 30 2009
A number of changes to early years teaching in England could be made as a result of reforms to the funding system for such education.
These reforms are necessary to ensure the nursery system is fairer across the board, chief executive of the National Day Nurseries Association Purnima Tanuku said.
She noted that a move to offer more support to nurseries in the independent sector could make things fairer for all sectors.
"NDNA strongly believes that nurseries should only be paid for free entitlement sessions that are actually provided. This move is vital in ensuring that all nurseries are treated fairly and equitably and paid for services provided," Ms Tanuku said.
She added that transitional measures could be offered by local authorities to ensure that any organisation which may otherwise be facing financial difficulty can cope with the changes.
Every three and four-year-old in the country is entitled to claim a free part-time place at a nursery.
