Work is progressing on the development of an Executive Childcare Strategy for Northern Ireland.  This survey offers an opportunity to gather a range of information about practice, the characteristics of the workforce and importantly your views on the challenges facing the sector now and in the future.  The results of this survey will help inform and facilitate policy discussions.

To ensure we have a better understanding of both the opportunities and challenges for School Age Childcare provision, PlayBoard is undertaking a State of the Sector survey.

The effectiveness of the survey relies on YOUR participation in completing the questionnaire. We do encourage you to take this opportunity to help shape the future of School Age Childcare Services here in Northern Ireland.

Please complete the questionnaire by 31 January 2020.

Organisations that respond to the survey will be included in a prize draw.
