Here are some sites/forums which have reacted/responded in the More Great Childcare campaign:
June Sullivan's - ‘Reclaim Early Years’: The call for us to stand up to current governmental proposals to make huge (detrimental) changes in the Early Years sector in Britain. blog: http://juneosullivan.wordpress.com/2013/04/24/dear-colleagues-its-time-we-finally-took-control/
The Save Childhood Movement (www.savechildhood.net) is a collaboration of individuals/organisations that share a deep concern about societal values and wellbeing and the current erosion of natural childhood. (words taken from website). I attended The Flourish Summit in April and was greatly heartened to see how of one mind we are as practitioners who... PUT THE CHILD FIRST.
One Voice - www.togetherforquality.com
The site is a platform where all articles, blogs, documents etc. concerning More Great Childcare are put in one place for easy navigation of past and current issues. A website created by a friend and early years colleague, Penny Webb. My role is layout and design of the site, along with fully supporting everything One Voice stands for. With a deep love and respect for children (especially those in high need), I use my graphic design skills to provide practical help on a volunteer basis.
