The Annual Childcare Parents Survey

The Annual Childcare Parents Survey is now available online. This will run from 15 November until 15 December 2022. Please can you add the link to your online sites and include in any updates to parents over the next 4 weeks.
This is an annual survey for all parents and carers of children aged 0-14 (18 with Special Educations Needs and Disabilities (SEND)).
The completed survey helps Plymouth City Council to look at what is working well and what needs to be improved in the childcare sector.

We use the information compiled from the survey to inform Plymouth City Council departments and partners of any barriers to childcare and work strategically towards eliminating these where possible.
We are hoping to get a good response from parents and thank you in advance for supporting us to do this.
