Government fails pre-school children

Pre-school policies ‘lack impact’

Do me a favour. Find your local Surestart Centre. Ask them what they are doing with the funding.

In Wincanton, there is a Surestart centre. It is officially the Surestart centre for this area. They haven’t even managed to employ someone for it. People who work at it don’t even know it’s a Surestart centre. This is how important the children are in this area. I will wager money that this is typical. You want to know why children are unruly, unpleasant and anti social? We have let them. And here is one way we have done that.

There are childcare facilities in the area desperate for the money who are already doing the job. Why is it that whenever a good idea is put in place, the wrong people get the funding?

Because we let them get away with it.
