We need your views on Childcare!

Under the Childcare Act, 2006, Shropshire Council is required to ensure sufficient childcare to meet the needs of working parents and those parents returning to work, education or training.

We are currently seeking the views of local people on childcare provision in this area. This will help to identify gaps in provision and develop an action plan to close these gaps. A report will be published in March 2011
