Champagne Nurseries Update

Champagne Nurseries Lemonade Funding

CLICK THE ARROW TO WATCH THE VIDEO The campaign to raise awareness about the inadequacy of the Government’s early education funding is gaining momentum with the announcement of the date and destination of the ‘Lemonade Cards’ being announced in the Facebook Group page that is driving the campaign. This public protest, aimed directly at Government,  will further highlight the unrest in the early years sector, which has grown most recently with the announcement from some nurseries within the 30 hour pilot regions of their withdrawal from the pilot because of the inadequacy of the rate for these pilot areas – being offered at just £3.95 in York for the additional 15 hours.

A Guidance Sheet providing instructions on how you can get involved in the campaign has been produced and if you have any questions you can ask on the Facebook page for further information or clarification. They’re asking you to share this information with as many other providers, individual practitioners, pre-schools, playgroups, childminders and also parents in order to gather as much support as possible – and get as many cards sent out as they can.
So spread the word everyone through your usual email channels, Facebook, Twitter  (#champagnenurseries) or any other media you can think of.
