Warwickshire County Council
on behalf of the Warwickshire Early Years Development and Childcare Partnership
we want to hear the views of parents and employers on the provision of childcare in
In May the Government launched its National Childcare Strategy which aims to improve
the quality of childcare for children up to 14 years, whilst making it more accessible and
affordable to parents.
Elizabeth Featherstone, from the County Council, explains:
"If you are a parent of a child up to 14 years of age, then we want to hear from
you. What kind of childcare do you want or what stops you from using childcare? Please
take the time to give us your views as fully as possible; they are important and will be
used to shape local plans for childcare.
"Equally we also want to hear from employers. For example we would be interested
if they offered childcare in the workplace as an employee benefit. Or do they think it
would hinder getting the job done? Alternatively some employers may want to offer this but
are unable to. Whatever your views we want to hear them!"
If you would like to give your views telephone our 24 hour answerphone on 01926 412408
to request reply-paid survey form.
