The Government published More Affordable Childcare in July, which set out the steps we are taking to reduce the costs of child care.

More Affordable Childcare sets out plans to:

1. help families to meet the costs of child care

2. increase the amount of affordable provision

3. give parents the right information so they can make informed choices about child care

Copies are available online at the Department for Education's website(1) and in the Library.
