Seminar report 1

Wednesday 3 October 2018

In September 2017 the universal childcare offer for English 3 and 4 year olds was extended to 30 hours for the children of working parents. September 2018, one year on from the national roll-out, saw the publication of its evaluation. On the afternoon of Wednesday 3 October ICMEC hosted the co-authors of the evaluation report commissioned by the Department for Education, Dr Gillian Paull of Frontier Economics and Ivana LaValle, independent research and Visiting Scholar attached to ICMEC. With a diverse audience the authors explored the findings and ramifications of this policy evaluation at this first seminar in the 12th annual series of ICMEC international seminars, which was chaired by Dr Jana Javornik of the Cass School of Education and Communities at UEL.
