Perth & Kinross Council is seeking the views of parents and carers with babies, under-fives and school-age children regarding care and early education provision in the local area. We are also interested in your views if you are planning or expecting to have children.

If you would like more information on any aspect of childcare or funded early learning and childcare provision in Perth and Kinross then you should contact the Childcare and Family Information Service email childcare@pkc.gov.uk or telephone 0345 601 4477. Details of individual childcare services are available on the national website.

We acknowledge that things may be very different for your family needs for childcare currently due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we would ask you respond to the questionnaire as if in non Covid times.

Why your views matter

Local authorities have a statutory duty to consult every two years on the provision of early learning and childcare, to inform the planning and delivery of services.

The survey aims to gain insight around the following areas:

  • The future delivery of early learning and childcare
  • Anticipated needs around childcare 

The findings of the survey will be used to inform childcare places and the Childcare Strategy Team's work to support the development of sustainable childcare services across Perth and Kinross.
