Join us at the launch of our new research Transforming Early Childhood Education and Care: Sharing International Learnings on Monday 15th April at Hogan Lovells.

England's current early childhood education and care infrastructure is failing women and reform is critical to gender equality. 

Fawcett's newest and most detailed report on childcare uniquely brings together our previous data analysis from five countries who have undergone reform, alongside gathering in-depth, practical knowledge from round-table discussions and expert interviews.

We spoke to international experts to find out what the process of implementing large scale change had really been like and this report applies our findings specifically to England ahead of the 2024 general election.
