Childcare sufficiency

We have a statutory duty under the Childcare Act to ensure there is sufficient childcare available in Peterborough.

We assess the demand for childcare services in the city every year. We then compare this to the supply of services available, to understand how well the needs of children and families are being met.

If you have any enquiries, please contact us via telephone or the online form requesting the Early Years & Childcare Service, or by emailing the team directly at
