Childcare Sufficiency Assessment

Local authorities in England have a legal duty to secure sufficient childcare for working parents or parents who are studying or training for employment, as far as is reasonably practicable. These duties are set out under the Childcare Act 2006.

Each year, we update the childcare sufficiency assessment. This document uses information from a range of sources to identify possible gaps in childcare provision.
