Nurseries "will struggle" to offer extra free childcare

Many nurseries in England will struggle to provide 30 hours of free pre-school childcare, despite the promise of an extra £1bn, the Pre-School Learning Alliance has said. In April 2017, the hourly rates paid by government will be raised to £4.88 per three- and four-year-old child for private, independent and voluntary providers and to £5.39 for state providers, but the Family and Childcare Trust has pointed out that 30 local authorities already pay their providers more than this.
