Children and Young People Network Meeting
This session will focus on what support is needed for children in their early years' post-pandemic. We know that the pandemic has disrupted the lives of children across London, particularly for families facing financial insecurity.

Currently, only three- and four-year-olds of working parents can access 30 hours a week of childcare, while only 15 hours a week is available to disadvantaged families. However, new research from the London Early Years Foundation shows that doubling childcare hours significantly improved learning and development among disadvantaged three and four-year-olds.

We’re delighted to be joined by Samantha Creme (Director of Strategy and Business) and June O’Sullivan (CEO) from London Early Years Foundation to discuss their research in more detail and what is needed to support children in poverty going forward.

We’ll also be joined by Dawn Kendall (Programme Lead) from Power2 to talk about their Teens and Toddlers programme – educational programme designed to help young people succeed at school through the experience of mentoring nursery children. Dawn will also share reflections on the challenges and opportunities for young children in London post-pandemic.
