Petitioning Nicky Morgan, Secretary for Education

17 July 2014

Revise changes to Childcare Regulations re ratios and ensure staff in Out Of School Provision hold a Playwork qualification

As a sector passionate about children's right to freely play we welcome the new Education Secretary but please ask that she reconsider the new changes to the Childcare Regulations which undermine the sectors growth and ability to qualify staff who understand the need for children to access good quality play provision supported by playworkers.  Children need time to play outside of school hours in order to stimulate their brains, develop social skills, take risks and challenges and be creative in all aspects of the word.  Please support a scetor that has the interest of children's well-beig at the heart of all they do, as well as total commitment to the Right of a Child to play.
