Childcare and early education consultation opens
Perth & Kinross Council is seeking the views of parents and carers with babies, under-fives and school-age children regarding care and early education provision in the local area.
The online survey aims to gain insight around the following areas:
- The future delivery of early learning and childcare
- Anticipated needs around childcare
The findings from the consultation, which is open until 18 April 2021, will be used to inform both the provision of childcare places and the Childcare Strategy Team's work to support the development of sustainable childcare services across Perth and Kinross.
Bernadette Martin-Scott, Service Manager, Early Years and Child Care said: "We absolutely understand the past year has been a difficult one for families in Perth and Kinross. As we now begin to move out of lockdown, we felt this was a good time to ask parents and carers what they and their children would most benefit from in the longer term in terms of childcare and early education, so we can plan to meet their needs as effectively as possible."
The survey is now available online from our Consultation Hub.
