We want to give parents the freedom, support and choice to look after their children in the way that works best for them. As set out in the government’s manifesto, we will invest up to £1 billion over three years to create more high-quality wraparound and holiday childcare places from 2021.

Further details on this significant new investment will be announced in due course.
