We are asking the Government to listen to the nationwide campaign to approve Nursery School funding that will ensure the long term survival or our unique Early Years Schools.
Maintained nursery schools need a guarantee now that they will have viable funding after 2020, otherwise we will see a sudden spate of closures.
Ministers have acknowledged that they need funding at a higher rate than other parts of the early years sector and have provided interim funding of £60m a year until 2019-20. A long-term solution must include a commitment to fund maintained nursery schools on the same basis as all other schools, including a lump sum to cover the statutory requirements which private and voluntary sector nurseries are not required to meet.
