Childcare sufficiency

Our statutory duty

We have a statutory duty to ensure there is sufficient childcare for 0-14 year-olds, whose families wish to access childcare.  We also have a statutory duty to ensure there are sufficient early learning places for all eligible 2, 3 and 4 year-olds.  Childcare provision needs to support parents or carers who are in work or training for work.

The childcare market in Norfolk

Published in January 2019, a statutory annual report is presented to Children’s Services Committee. It reports on the sufficiency of childcare and the state of the childcare market across Norfolk.
