An Early Childhood Education and Care survey is currently being conducted in European countries on behalf of the European Commission. The CARE project is funded by the European Commission/ European Science Foundation to look at early childhood education and care (ECEC) across Europe. The survey is designed to provide information that can help policy-makers across Europe and may influence decision-making in the European Commission.

Part of the project is a study of the views of parents, policy-makers and practitioners. It covers all kinds of ECEC from child minders, playgroups, day nurseries, children’s centres, nursery class, nursery school, kindergarten etc. This information will help the voice of the parents in the UK be heard in Brussels. We ask for your cooperation, and emphasise your responses are anonymous.
