Learning Community #1 with Amy Martin

Hello I’m Amy, Creative Producer at F A M A L A M and mom. I’m part of the #RadicalChildcare team and I am chuffed to be hosting our first #RadicalChildcare Learning Community meeting, which I would invite you to come along to. It really doesn’t matter if you’re a professor, a grandmother, a student; no experience is necessary (just a little homework). For our first session I propose we explore two fascinating reports:

Nesta’s Mothers of Innovation Report

This is a report I was lucky enough to read when I was on maternity leave, and one that I found hugely motivating. “Mothers can change the world. Socially, commercially and economically, mothers are a force for innovation around the world. This report shows how and why mothers make such great innovators.” Download the report here.

Co-produced childcare: an alternative route to affordable, high quality provision in the UK? by NEF, Sophia Parker and Hannah Lownsborough

This provocation piece explores why childcare in the UK has become dysfunctional, outlining how parent co-operatives could play a greater role in the UK childcare sector. Download the report here.

You can book a space to attend this Community Learning meeting via here. We ask that you read the research material where possible, and bring an item of food to share with the group if you can. For more information about the #RadicalChildcare Learning Community please click here.
