CHILDCARE REPORT CALLS FOR OVERHAUL OF REGULATIONS

A report on the future of childcare by the government's better regulation task force is published today, reports The Times (p7).

The report will call for an overhaul of regulations governing early education and daycare for children, and aims to influence childcare policy as outlined in the government green paper, Meeting the Childcare Challenge, which was published in May.

The report rejects ideas for the establishment of a national nanny registration scheme because it would not offer parents complete protection and becuse task force members believe that parents must take their own decisions about their children's welfare.

The conclusions of the report do not apply to schools and nurseries, which are already subject to laws and regulations about their childcare staff.
