The Conservative Manifesto promises the money for 30 hours child care a week to families where both mother and father go out to work and they have a child or children aged 3-4. This doubles the current position of 15 hours free child care a week.
The modern reality is many families do have two working parents. Child care is expensive, and everyone wants their child to have good quality child care they can trust. That means paying decent salaries to people capable of looking after the children well in a safe and interesting environment for the child.
This policy should be most welcome to young families in Wokingham. Bringing up young children is a costly activity, and often coincides with other large bills as the family moves into a family home with all the attendant costs. 30 free hours of childcare a week should be a welcome help.
