Survey results

Recommended Posts

Thank you to everyone who took the time to complete our survey recently. We had 867 respondents. Some respondents were kind enough to allow us to share their data with the Pre-school Learning Alliance and this added weight to a front page article in The Observer last weekend. You can read the article and comment on this thread: A thousand nurseries close as free childcare scheme falters.

The summary results of our survey are posted below. The headline data is interesting:

  • The financial impact of the 30 hours scheme has been that 36% of our respondents have seen their income fall since September and 37% have seen no change, with the majority of the 'no change' having decided not to offer the scheme.
  • 55% of respondents said that the administration of the scheme had increased their work load and that this increase was being worked unpaid.
  • 47% of respondents either knew their setting was unsustainable or were unsure of their setting's sustainability with a further 15% reporting that they 'really didn't know' what the future held. Only 39% of providers felt that they were sustainable going forward (with many of these saying that this is because they are not offering the 30 hours scheme.)
