Worcestershire parents and carers of children aged two, three and four are being encouraged to share their views on the provision of childcare in the county.

A parent and carer childcare survey has been launched by Worcestershire County Council to find out about the experiences and needs of families with young children in relation to childcare.

The information gained from the survey will be used to inform our Childcare Sufficiency Assessment and will support us to plan and ensure there are enough free childcare places in Worcestershire to meet demand.

Worcestershire County Councillor Marcus Hart, Cabinet Member with responsibility for education and skills, said: "We're committed to ensuring that there are enough high quality childcare places at the times and in the places that families need to access them."

"This survey comes off the back of Government initiatives to support parents and carers of two, three and four year olds, to return to work and training and is certain to help us plan and ensure that our provision best meets the needs of our residents."

The survey can be found at www.worcestershire.gov.uk/childcaresufficiency, and is open until Friday 13th July.
