The current crisis of cost and supply in the early childhood education and care system in England is well-documented. Deniz will discuss their project, which aims to map the accessibility of early childhood services in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets through the prism of inequality and a broad definition of access.
The project adopts a systems approach on bringing up children in a highly urbanised environment from the parents’ perspective.
This in-person event will be particularly useful for researchers, policymakers, teachers and those with in interest in social inequalities, education, childhood, systems of care and parenting.
