Today marks the start of National Childcare Week organised by Daycare Trust. Now in its 14th year, the week promotes the importance of childcare, extended schools, and early years’ provision for children which helps to strengthen and contribute to children’s play and learning – providing a good foundation for their future.
It is the 25th anniversary of the formation of the Daycare Trust, so they are extremely keen to encourage people to organise their own event to help celebrate the National Childcare Week and their anniversary. They are also running a children’s art competition, as well as asking childcare professionals to hold an event in their own childcare setting to encourage others to see how the childcare they provide brings positive outcomes to children.
If you want to support the week by organising your own event or activity then you can email the Daycare Trust at: nationalchildcareweek.org.uk and they will be happy to provide promotional materials and add your event to their calendar of activities.
