Petition Provide support for on going childcare payments during closures due to Covid-19
Childcare providers following the government guidance to close because of concerns around Covid-19 are still charging parents full monthly fees. For working parents this is putting an enormous financial burden on them while they look to provide full time childcare whilst maintaining full time jobs.
Consider self employed parents who will be unable to work and maintain full time childcare. Nurseries should have adequate cash reserves or insurance to cover these periods rather than put the financial burden on parents or risk losing their child’s nursery place. Can the States offer backing to parents to elevate some of this pressure during an already stressful time?
