Childcare Offer Provider Questionnaire

We want to hear childcare provider’s thoughts on the Childcare Offer for Wales. If you’re a childcare provider please take 5 minutes to share your thoughts using the survey below:

1. Which of the following forms of government funded childcare or early education support have you heard of (tick all that apply)?


2. The Childcare Offer for Wales will provide eligible working parents of 3 and 4 year olds with 30 hours of government-funded early education and childcare per week for up to 48 weeks per year across term time and holidays. Were you aware of this?


3. We have been piloting the offer in specific areas from September 2017. During the pilot phase providers delivering the childcare element of the offer will receive £4.50 an hour per child taking up the offer, although providers are still able to charge for additional items such as food or activities that incur an additional cost. How does this compare to the rate you would normally charge on average per hour?


4. As a provider, would you have any concerns about delivering the offer?


5. The new offer will include 9 weeks of childcare per year during the school holidays. Do you currently offer provision during the schools holidays for 3 and 4 year olds?


6. If you currently do not provide holiday provision, would you be willing to deliver the offer for 3 and 4 year olds during the holidays as a result of the new offer?


7. How would you like to receive information about the Childcare Offer for Wales as we continue to develop it (select all that apply)?


8. Do you have any other comments you’d like to make?
