Childcare Sufficiency Assessment and Action Plan 2011-2014

Bristol City Council, Early Years Service has published its Childcare Sufficiency Assessment (CSA) and Action Plan for 2011-2014.

The purpose of the CSA is to help us make the best use of resources by targeting support and investment in areas where high quality and accessible early learning and childcare is needed the most. We are committed to ensuring that all children have an excellent experience of learning and care, that provision is accessible and affordable for working parents and that our providers are supported in delivering high quality, sustainable provision.

It was with this commitment in mind that we conducted a citywide survey between July and September 2010 to find out what parents, children, providers and employers think about our services. The response was tremendous and we would like to thank everyone who took part.

Our assessment of childcare needs has identified a number of service priorities which we have set out as recommendations for an Action Plan for 2011-2014.
