Childcare Sufficiency Assessment 2022

Date opened


Date closes



The Childcare Act 2006 (Local Authority Assessment) (Wales) Regulations 2016, made under section 26 of the 2006 Act, requires local authorities to prepare assessments of the sufficiency of childcare provision (Childcare Sufficiency Assessment) in their area and to keep these under review.

The Childcare Sufficiency Assessment must measure the nature and extent of the need for, and supply of, childcare in the area.

This report includes an Action Plan; this must detail the actions, priorities and milestones to maintain strengths and address shortcomings identified in the Childcare Sufficiency Assessment.

Why are we consulting

Effective consultation is a core element of the sufficiency assessment and gives those with an interest in childcare an opportunity to highlight relevant issues or concerns. Childcare Statutory Guidance (2016)
