Ruby Rogers and her Intervenor support worker

Sense has responded to today’s Government announcement of an additional £55m of funding towards the implementation of the 30 hours free childcare policy due to start in September. The funding, which is double the amount previously set aside by the Government, has been made available to enable nurseries, pre-schools and playgroups to invest in the new buildings and upgrade facilities needed to accommodate the new initiative.
