I just want to get advice from any practitioners who have the 30 hours free childcare in place. Have you found any problems with it? i.e. admin, staffing, funding problems? Has it had a positive impact on your numbers beyond nursery? Our school (independent) currently have low numbers in our Early Years and have registered for the Goverment's 30 hours funding in the hopes of increasing our numbers. However I have read more disadvantages than advantages to this and need to think carefully about this before I make a pan. Can you help?
