This article is old - Published: Tuesday, Oct 25th, 2016

Are you finding it difficult to access childcare? Do you think the provision is sufficient? You may be happy with the childcare you use or it could be that you decided not to use childcare. Whatever your views about childcare we want to hear from you. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The Childcare Act 2006 places a legal duty on Local Authorities to undertake a Childcare Sufficiency Assessment (CSA). This is an assessment of existing childcare provision in the county, mapping supply of, demand for and gaps in the childcare market. The aim is to support sufficient childcare to enable parents to work or undertake training or education. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Ceredigion County Council is currently consulting with parents/carers for their views about childcare in Ceredigion. It’s important that parents tell us are they finding childcare provision an issue. The information we collect will help to address childcare issues in the county. To participate in the online survey you can access the following link https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/QP2G8ZZ or contact the Family Information Service on 01545 574187 for a hard copy of the survey. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Councillor Hag Harris, Cabinet Member with responsibility for Learning Services, Children and Young People’s Partnership said: “It is important that parents and carers get the chance to have their say, this is an opportunity for them to tell us where the gaps in childcare provision are. Ceredigion County Council will work in partnership to develop a five year strategy plan to address the issues identified”. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

The final report will be available on the Ceredigion Family Information Service website from April 2017 http://fis.ceredigion.gov.uk/. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
