Childcare sufficiency in Bolton

Local Authorities are required to report annually on childcare places in their area to ensure there are sufficient places to meet the needs of local families.

Bolton's Childcare Sufficiency Annual Report for 2016/17 is now available.

The Early Years and Childcare team are dedicated to maintaining and improving childcare in the Bolton area. We offer a range of information, training and advice to providers helping them to continuously develop their staff and business. 

Our leaflet Setting up Childcare Provision in Bolton contains useful information and contacts for anyone interested in opening a new childcare setting in the local area.

For training and professional development information please visit the Early Years Exchange which is a web-based suite of resources for all practitioners working with children in the early years. It is a forum for practitioners, the Local Authority and other early years services to access and share information, disseminate good practice, keep up-to-date with current policy and research and to provide support for the early years sector by the early years sector.

For information on childcare and early education in your area please see the Schools and children section of the website or use our online childcare search
