It is one of the Local Authority’s (LA) statutory duties to undertake a Childcare Sufficiency Assessment (CSA), which, in the past, we produced annually and published on our website.

This year we are taking a new approach to our CSA duties in the form of a bi-annual scorecard, which we are launching in the summer term.

We hope you will find this document more current and user-friendly to provide information about your area and across the City. Any prospective providers also use such documentation to guide them as to where any additional place provision may be developed. An Annual Executive Summary will accompany the report card, and a full Parental Demand Survey produced every third year.

In order to support the LA to produce accurate sufficiency data, we will require all providers of early education and childcare in Nottingham to complete an online survey twice per year (during the summer and autumn terms).

We will email the survey out to providers as a web link week commencing 13th May 2019. The survey should only take a few minutes to complete.

We would like to thank you in advance for your time and support with this vital piece of work.
