1 Childcare survey 2022
Lincolnshire families are being asked to complete a survey to help gauge demand for childcare places in the county.
The council is required to ensure there are sufficient childcare places for working parents, parents studying or training, and for disabled children. Although the authority does not provide childcare directly, it works closely with private, voluntary and independent providers and schools to shape and support the development of local provision to ensure it’s flexible, sustainable and responsive to the needs of the community.
As part of this process, the council is asking parents to complete a short survey to help the authority assess the need for childcare places across the county.
Cllr Mrs Patricia Bradwell OBE, executive member for children’s services, said: “It’s vital that parents have access to suitable childcare, so they have the ability to go out to work, study or train. The information provided through this survey will help identify any gaps in local provision, which we can then look to address with providers. Please take the time to share your views, so we can ensure the childcare sector meets local needs.”
The survey runs from Monday 25th April to Friday 6th May
The Family Information Service maintains the list of Ofsted-registered childcare in the county, although any information provided by us does not constitute a recommendation and you should satisfy yourself of the quality and standard of any service or childcare provider you contact so that it meets the needs of your family.
