Satty Irish started this petition to Early years funding and

Currently in the UK 15hrs per week funding is  available to 2 year olds and 30hrs per week for 3/4 year olds.However this is only available in term time only which means over the 6 week summer holiday for example parents have to pay the full fee or find alternative arrangements which can be a huge financial impact due to loss of earnings or days off work due to lack of child care.Tax credit is available to cover cost which states up to "70%" but this is not allways the case and you can sometimes get way less or find it may only cover enough for 1 child when no term time funding is availble.

The change to universal credit for some also does not help the matter either and we are currently seeing more and more  parents struggling to make ends meet.

I feel this change will help to reduce financial stress/burden to parents  and aslo prevent large amounts of nursery debts .It will also encourage more parent to seek work as they have the security of free child care  throughout.
