DfE - Local Authority Early Years and Childcare


The early years and childcare sector is part of a critical national infrastructure providing care for the children of critical workers and vulnerable children. It is crucial that the Department for Education (DfE) and the Local Authority has up-to-date information on what early years and childcare provision exists during the COVID-19 pandemic; which children are accessing it; and any availability or other problems that may be arising. 


From the week commencing 20 April 2020 we will be collecting data weekly by asking you to complete this survey. Please respond by 10am each Wednesday until further notice.

CLOSED PROVIDERS – There is no requirement to complete this form unless you open for children of critical workers and/or vulnerable children.
