Free childcare scheme faces funding 'crisis', charity claims
The government's free childcare scheme is facing "chronic underfunding", according to a report commissioned by the Pre-school Learning Alliance.
Local authorities currently receive money from the government to pay for up to 15 hours of free childcare a week.
But the report suggests this funding is only enough to cover four out of every five children taking up the offer.
