A Bradford MP wants parents, nurseries and primary schools to give their views on the Government’s early years childcare reforms.

David Ward (Lib Dem, Bradford East) will send out a survey before using the results to write a report which will be submitted to the Department of Education.

The proposed reforms require staff working with babies, toddlers and small children to have at least a C grade in GCSE English and maths, as well as allowing high quality providers to offer more places.

Mr Ward said the Government expects these changes will give parents more choice, increase standards and bring down the cost of childcare.

“We need to make sure that all children in Bradford have the best start in life,” he said.

“Early years are some of the most important stages of a child’s development.

“I want to make sure people living in Bradford have their voices heard in Westminster.”
