All Party Parliamentary Group (APPG)

Pen Green are acting as secretariat for the APPG on Nursery Schools and Nursery Classes.


The first meeting of the All Party Parliamentary Group on nursery schools and nursery education took place in Westminster on 3rd March 2016. Chaired by Graham Stuart, the former chair of the Education Select Committee the group has set itself a clear aim and purpose. The key issues are:


  1. Why does nursery education still matter?
  2. How can nursery schools fulfill the vital role of supporting quality in the whole early years sector?
  3. Can the organizational structure of nursery schools be changed to secure their future?


The first meeting was concerned with why nursery schools matter. The second meeting will be held on 17th May 2016 2-4pm.
