Childcare sufficiency

The Childcare Sufficiency Report presents a vibrant picture of the childcare market in Reading. The Early Years Service produces these reports, as part of its statutory duty under the childcare act 2006, in order to identify areas of Reading where there is a need for additional childcare places. This includes places in nurseries, out of school childcare, childminders, and pre-schools.
