Childcare sufficiency assessment

The Early Years and Childcare Sufficiency Team regularly surveys parents, providers and employers to find out their views on the childcare situation in Calderdale.

We want to know what you think about childcare in terms of:

  • availability (are there enough places of the right type for your children?);
  • accessibility (are the places in the right area and are they open at the right time?);
  • affordability (do the places cost too much and do you have enough information about additional financial help?);
  • quality (do the places offer a safe, welcoming and enjoyable experience for your children?).

The Childcare sufficiency assessment carried out at the end of 2016 is available to download:
