Childcare Sufficiency Assessment 

The Childcare Act 2006 makes it clear in legislation the importance of the role Local Authorities should play in the provision of local childcare. It reinforces the need for local authorities to continue to work in partnership with the maintained, independent, private, voluntary, and community sectors to shape and secure children’s services.

This report examines statistical information relating to private, public, and voluntary childcare and play providers within Newport City boundaries.

The report is split into eight sections, which you can read below. 

Read our Executive Summary of the Childcare Sufficiency Assessment (pdf) which provides a brief overview of the full report.
