description: The current economic climate, coupled with the roll-out of the two year old education offer, not only poses sustainability challenges to private childcare providers across the country, but also creates risks to childcare quality. The latest DFE Childcare and Early Years Providers Survey (http://tinyurl.com/p76xel3) documented profit margins and measures employed to stem losses among day nurseries, childminders and out-of-school services, alongside rich information about school-based early years services.
At the next ICMEC seminar Ivana Lavalle, co-author of this report and current ICMEC Visiting Scholar, will highlight salient factors supporting private provider sustainability which remain topical today. Our second speaker, Courteney Donaldson, Director Corporate Childcare at Christie and Co, brings a business intelligence perspective to these issues, based on her involvement in every major UK nursery transaction since 2006.
We look forward to a lively discussion and hope you will take part.
The seminar will be on Monday 3 March, 2-5pm in KD.2.13, Docklands Campus.
