Parent and Carer Childcare Survey

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Calling all parents and carers, West Sussex County Council needs your feedback!

We are looking for views from all parents and carers of children aged 0-14 years (and up to 18 for children with SEND) about how you use childcare, how this has changed over the course of the COVID-19 pandemic, and how this may continue to change in the future.

As part of the Local Authorities statutory duties around sufficiency we are required to have an understanding of the supply and demand of childcare places and any gaps in provision, including how these gaps will be addressed.

To support this knowledge and understanding it is important that we include the voice of the families so we can better understand if the childcare available is meeting your needs.

The questions and length of the survey will vary depending on the age of your child/children but should take no more than 10 minutes to complete. Importantly your feedback will help us to shape improvements to the future of childcare delivery in West Sussex and support the availability of childcare provision to meet continuing demand.

Thank you in advance for your help!

The survey is open until 30 September 2022.

Please note, this survey is only for families who live in West Sussex.
