Childcare Sufficiency

Section 6 of the Education Act 2006 sets out the duty of local authorities of securing, as far as is reasonably possible, sufficient places for children aged 2,3 and 4 to claim their entitlement to funded nursery education, In addition, local authorities should secure sufficient childcare to support parents back to work or to undertake education or training leading to work. 

As part of this duty an annual Childcare Sufficiency Assessment report is produced to set out and consider places available and current demographics.
