''Tell us about your childcare needs''

Closed 10 Sep 2021

Opened 18 Aug 2021


At Essex County Council we have a legal responsibility to make sure there are enough childcare places to meet all children’s needs across Essex via a Childcare Sufficiency Audit

As a parent of children aged 0-19 (or 25 if your child has special education needs or disabilities) living in Essex, your views and experiences of childcare and early years are essential for us to understand how to evolve our plans. We also want to hear from you whether you use formal childcare or not. As this is so important, we will be asking about a variety of topics which will take around 10 minutes to complete.

Please answer as honestly as you can, your views are important to us!

By completing the survey, you agree for your feedback to be used to inform:

1) the Essex Childcare Sufficiency Audit and
2) the development of the Early Years and Childcare Strategy for Essex

Your feedback will be treated in the strictest of confidence and will remain anonymous. Your participation is voluntary

Please respond by Tuesday 31st August 2021 to have your views included. 
Thank you for taking part, we really appreciate your feedback. 

If you have any questions, please contact early.years@essex.gov.uk
