What We Do
let's build a movement. a platform for parents, workers, carers, and campaigners across the UK.
We do not have regular funding at present, and so are slowly developing a structure for how to build the coalition and build a movement. This page is a work in progress. Be in touch to be part of how things develop!
We are beginning to establish 'chapters' - local networks of activists - in different regions of England.
Manchester: We are beginning to connect activists in preparation to fight early years struggles in Manchester..
London: We are connecting activists with experience of nursery campaigns in Hackney, Tower Hamlets and Salford, with new local campaigns fighting against closures.
If you'd like to set up a chapter in your local area, be part of these emerging chapters, or have a campaign that needs help please email us: PostPandemicChildcare@gmail.com
We aim to build a movement that calls for decent pay and conditions for all childcare workers; high-quality early years education and care for all children; and an end to the reliance on unpaid childcare work.
We will continue to raise awareness of the privatisation of early years services and the loss of small, non-profit, community and cooperative nurseries, council-run day nurseries and maintained nursery schools.
We are committed to raising how the hostile environment, workers rights, and the importance of Special Educational Needs and Disabilities (SEND) provision, are ignored or sidelined in terms of demands for interventions to protect early years provision.
