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.

We have a legal duty to ensure that there is enough childcare available in Sheffield. This is to enable parents to work or undertake training to be in work.

The Childcare Sufficiency Assessment (CSA) is an assessment of existing childcare provision in the city, mapping supply, demand, and gaps in the childcare market.

We are required to produce the report annually.
