Counting the Cost of Early Years Election Pledges

See what 2020 may hold for the sector. With exclusive information direct from the political parties.

The December general election is just over a week away and the UK political parties have been preparing for the upcoming election, with candidates promoting their campaigns, pledges and promises across the country.

Early education and childcare feature prominently in party manifestos as the 2019 election draws near and the proposals vary in both scope and clarity.

Here’s a sneak-peek at funding commitments from the Conservatives, Labour and Liberal Democrats. 

Party Funding Commitments

It can be difficult to know who to vote for so Ceeda have kindly pulled together an election briefing which reveals how manifesto commitments stack up for the sector following the 12th December. They have been busy pricing election pledges, based on forecasts of sector costs at April 2020 and exclusive information direct from parties on their 2020/21 funding rates.
