Twelve per cent of parents want schools shut until January

While the government and education unions are debating the plan for children to return to school, the UK’s leading online childcare platform has revealed that more than three-quarters (81%) of UK parents are not returning their child, as of June 1 is available in England.

An overview of more than 20,000 parents Kinderopvang.nl found that 62% of parents who answered “no” to returning children believe it is not safe to return to school or any other form of childcare until at least September.

Another 10% said they think it will not be safe until October 2020 and another 12% until January 2021.

Asked: “If your child’s school or daycare was open and available to you from June 1, would you return your child?” only 18.7 percent said yes.
