Parental childcare survey

Thank you for taking part in this survey, this engagement is now closed.  Please read our engagement report summarising your responses.  The feedback from parents and carers will play a vital role in shaping the local authority’s next steps with regards to early years and childcare developments. This will inform childcare provider queries into the county, as well as considering sufficiency gaps that need to be addressed.

This is what we asked you.


Do you use or intend to use childcare services, and do you live in Lincolnshire? 

If so, we would like your help to understand what the childcare needs are across the county.

As part of the Childcare Sufficiency Assessment 2022, we want to find out if parents/carers can access the childcare provision they need.

Your views are important to us. They help us to decide how to plan new services that will be useful for you and your children.

This survey should take around 10 minutes to complete.

There are also useful links for help with

  • Childcare costs
  • Information on Lincolnshire's local offer for children and young people with special educational needs and disabilities and their families.
