Good quality childcare is "all that matters", according to an education minister, who will announce plans to structure nursery education in an attempt to bridge the gap between low income and middle class pupils.
The Department for Education wants a "school-led system that is self-improving" in early years, which Liz Truss believes should be achievable without huge expense.
Sir Michael Wilshaw - who spoke about this last week - is absolutely right.
The early years are vitally important, and they're our best opportunity to eradicate the gap before it gets any bigger...
That's why we have been simplifying the red-tape, making it easier for good providers to expand.
Schools, nurseries, private providers, childminders - as long as you're providing good-quality childcare, that's all that matters - and there is a place for everybody.
