National Webinar – Changing lives through Childcare


A national webinar funded by Dept. for Education.
All of us can do our bit to tell families about childcare and pre-school learning.  Even if it isn’t our main role.
Childcare changes lives.  It has the potential to improve outcomes for children, provide a safeguard, and lift families out of disadvantage by supporting parents economic and employment choices and opportunities.
Join us and other family-facing professionals to develop your knowledge of 15 hours childcare for least advantaged two-year-olds, alongside other funded childcare and help with childcare costs.
This invaluable support can help with lots of things: families’ employment, child development, safeguarding, respite, educational progress, and health.  That is something worth considering.
We will provide you with the latest information and offer practical ideas to achieve childcare solutions for the parents and children you work with.
We will cover:

  • the types of messaging you could use to address misconceptions about childcare.
  • clear information on the benefits of childcare for both children and parents/carers.
  • guidance on how parents of children with SEND can seek additional support they may need to find appropriate childcare.

James Hempsall OBE says:
“Everyone who works with families of young children can play a critical role in supporting their decisions to take up childcare.  We all need more understanding of childcare, so we can talk confidently and positively, and appreciate what motivates families to use it.  Families often perceive all sorts of barriers to not using childcare – we can all help break these barriers of exclusion and non-participation.
Changing Lives Through Childcare is a short interactive workshop designed for everyone who works directly with families with pre-school children.  It provides a timely update for experienced staff and a comprehensive overview for new team members from children’s centres teams, health visitors, Jobcentre Plus, social care, schools, and other community groups etc.”
