I use a combination of nursery and grandparents for childcare, to force nursery only is not fair on the child, grandparents and parents

Formal childcare is expensive and not always accessible, especially during the current pandemic. Please stop forcing families to choose between their work and their children.

Grandparents looking after small children does not pose any increased risk to them and enables parents to work without the cost of formal child care or coming into contact with other parents or nursery staff

Lots of people use family members as informal child care to enable them to work. Stopping this impacts negatively to family finances and well- being
