Childcare during COVID-19



Early Years (EY) childcare is foundational to the economy and to society given its positive impact on child development and wellbeing. Without provision of formal and informal childcare, parents will not be able to return to work during or after the COVID-19 crisis, exacerbating intra-and inter-household inequalities. This project will address the urgent challenges of:

  • Disruption to and sustainability of provision 
  • Ensuring safe environments for workers, children and families.
