What is a Childcare Sufficiency Assessment? ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Every five years Flintshire County Council must complete a piece of work called a ‘Childcare Sufficiency Assessment’. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

This means that: ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Information is gathered to show:
· Where children live across Flintshire
· What childcare is available within these Flintshire areas
· How many children access these places
· How much of the childcare available is unfilled
· Where are the gaps
· What do parents think
· Is the childcare meeting the needs of parents
· What stops parents using childcare
· How could childcare in Flintshire be improved ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

How can you help? ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

This is where you come in. The following questionnaire has been produced to try and get some answers to these questions and see what you as parents / carers think!
If you would please just spend a few minutes answering some of the questions about your childcare or why you don’t use childcare, we can then build up a picture of parents’ / carers” needs and views across Flintshire. The more responses we have the better the chance of getting it right! ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Questionnaires can be completed online at: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/FISParentalSurvey
If you require a different format or would like to talk through your answers
please telephone The Family Information Service on 01352 703500. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​

Please take the time to complete the survey. ‌​‌​‌​​​‍‌​‌​​‌‌‌‍‌​‌‌​​‌​‍‌​‌‌‌​‌‌‍‌​‌‌‌‌​​
