Bradford LA is one of 25 Local Authorities chosen by the Department for Education to be a 30 hour Early Innovator. Early Innovators were asked to look specifically at innovative ways of making sure childcare is accessible to as many parents as possible.
One of Bradford’s projects was to identify the emotional aspects that affect parents when thinking about using childcare. Parents can feel apprehensive about leaving their child in childcare for the first time. This video was commissioned as part of the
Early Innovator work.
Watch this video on Families Information Service page here.
Parents explain what their anxieties were, how their childcare provider helped their child to settle in and what providers did to reassure parents.
This is a great resource to show to new parents visiting your provision and thinking about leaving their child for the first time.
