Professional association for childcare and early years
One Voice http://togetherforquality.com/
Set up by Penny Webb, a registered child minder, this site aims to unite people who care about the care and education of our youngest children in opposing the changes proposed by the current government in More Great Childcare. It has already had a hand in stopping the planned ratio increases that would have jeopardised children's standards of care as well as potentially raising costs to parents. It now is focused on stopping all the proposals in More Great Childcare, especially the planned child minder agencies, and requesting that the government enters into full consultation with practitioners and academics from the early years sectors.
