Early Education and Childcare Sufficiency Assessment

All local authorities have a statutory duty to ensure that the provision of early education and childcare in their areas is sufficient to meet the needs of parents, to allow them to work or undertake education or training.
As part of this, Bradford Council undertake an Early Education Childcare Sufficiency Assessment annually which looks at:

  • the demand for early education and childcare
  • the supply of high quality early education and childcare
  • identifying any gaps between supply and demand
