Right now, just 3% of Britain’s early years staff are men. Over a 20 year period this figure has not really changed despite an increase in hands on father’s and better gender equality requirements across all sectors. At Men Into Childcare York we have signed the MITEY charter and joined the campaign. If you are an early years educator then you might also want to do so.
This campaign has seen the department for education put in £30,000 in funding for resources to help get more males into the sector.
The MITEY conference was a huge success however without changes now, the 3% figure shows no sign of increasing any time soon.
If you can spare 5 minutes to sign your setting up to the charter then please do and we can get as many settings as possible to pledge to being a male friendly setting so that we can try and drive up the percentage of quality Male educators working with our little ones.
