Purnima Tanuku: 'All children need high-quality childcare'

Concerns have been raised about the literacy and numeracy skills of some people who work with pre-school children.

In a review commissioned by the government, Professor Cathy Nutbrown says nursery workers and childminders can qualify without a good standard of English and Maths.

Purnima Tanuku, of the National Day Nurseries Association, was part of the panel that met Prof Nutbrown as she put together her report.

She told BBC Breakfast about the need for high-quality childcare.
