Principles for a Public Childcare Model

The Community Platform has published Principles for delivering a high quality, inclusive and accessible Public Childcare Model.

The Platform believes that the progressive delivery of a high quality, inclusive and accessible public childcare model is urgently needed. Lessons from the past, and reinforced by the Covid-19 pandemic, show the important role of the state in providing key public services and in ensuring universal access. A properly designed and delivered public childcare model can play an important role in addressing poverty and disadvantage. The Six Principles for a Public Childcare Model are:

1.  Child centred

2.  State responsibility

3.  Investment

4.  Quality, inclusion and accessibility

5.  Equality

6.  Decent working conditions

The Community Platform will work to support the delivery of this public childcare model.

You can view the video of the launch event on the 11th November HERE.
