Take our childcare survey

We want to understand how the covid pandemic has affected supply and demand for childcare. Tell us your experiences of childcare during the pandemic and we will use your feedback to work with providers and schools when planning childcare in Sheffield.

We want all parents of children up to the age of 16 to tell us their views. The survey takes 10 minutes to complete.

Funded Early Learning (FEL) is Government funded childcare for all 3 and 4 year olds, and eligible 2 year olds. This can be up to 30 hours a week for some children.

Through play activities children benefit by:

  • learning language
  • developing physical and social skills
  • preparing them for the routine of going to school

Children who use a FEL place show greater levels of achievement in their school years. It also helps parents and carers access employment and training.
