The DfE is seeking user perspectives on the childcare and early years survey of parents, which provides information on parents with children aged 0 to 14 in England. It covers parents’ and their children’s use of childcare and early years provision, and their views and experiences.
It is also seeking views on the survey of childcare and early years providers, which collects information on the main characteristics of childcare and early years providers in England.
The DfE is consulting on the following aspects of each survey:
- topic coverage
- outputs and approaches to dissemination
Any changes to the surveys will be introduced from 2019 onwards.
