Help Reading Borough Council Shape the Provision of Childcare in Reading

Parents and carers are being urged to take part in a survey about the levels of childcare provision in Reading.

The annual survey is carried out to find out what users of childcare for children aged up to 14 years, and up to 18 years for children with special needs, think about the kind of care available in the borough. Childcare can take many forms from childminders, nurseries and pre-schools to after-school and holiday clubs. To complete the survey, click the image below or visit

The results of the survey will help the council shape future childcare provision in the town. This survey is being conducted as part of our statutory duty under the Childcare Act 2006/2016 to report on the childcare sufficiency in Reading.

Everyone completing the short questionnaire will be given the chance to enter a free prize draw to win £100 of vouchers for The Oracle Reading.

Survey ends Monday 30th April 2018
