The Council has a duty to ensure there are sufficient places for all eligible 2, 3 and 4 year olds whose family wishes to access Nursery Education Funding and other childcare to support them in work or training for work. The Childcare Sufficiency Assessment reports annually to Elected Members about the sufficiency of childcare and the state of the childcare market across the city.
During the summer of 2016 -17 we undertook 2 key surveys, the Childcare Demand Survey which was designed for parents to tell us about their childcare needs, and the Childcare Provider Survey which gathered information from childcare providers about various aspects of their childcare business and services they provide.
The results of the surveys have been analysed and we are pleased to publish the Nottingham City Childcare Sufficiency Assessment 2016 -17
