2:00pm 25th October 2013

City of York Council is asking mums, dads, carers and parents-to-be in York what they think about childcare in the city this autumn.

The council has today (25 October 2013)  launched a citywide consultation to find out whether there is enough high quality childcare in York, whether it’s available at the right time, in the right place and at an affordable price. The results of the survey will be used to help shape childcare provision in the future.

Carers, parents and parents-to-be can take part in the consultation in a number of ways:

  • Online atwww.yor-ok.org.uk/childcare
  • By calling the council’s Family Information Service on 01904 554444
  • By collecting a copy of the questionnaire from the reception at West Offices
  • By taking part in focus groups run at different locations around York

Councillor Janet Looker, Cabinet member for Education, Children and Young People, City of York Council said: “We know how important access to high quality, affordable childcare is for families. The council has a responsibility to ensure there is sufficient childcare in York and to do that it’s vital we know what people need and want. I’d urge parents and carers to take a few minutes to complete the survey – whether they use childcare or not – so we can work to improve York’s childcare in the future.”

The consultation will run until the end of December.
