Nurseries and pre-schools are being asked to stay open to support key workers children but to do this many nurseries are having to charge parents of children who are not able to attend at the moment. This is passing an economic burden onto parents who are now having to take time off their jobs to care for their children whilst still paying nursery fees. On top of this there are key workers whose children can no longer be looked after by grandparents. These key workers are then having to face bigger nursery bills in order to go to work to support the government's response to the COVID 19 outbreak. This is unacceptable. The government need to step in and fill in the funding gap that they have known has existed in nurseries for a long time. We should not have to pay to go to work as key workers. Equally people losing out on income shouldn't have to pay for childcare they are not receiving. Fund the nurseries, support your key workers!
