30 Hours Free Childcare Early Implementation Parental Demand Survey

Bolton is currently working with the Department for Education (DfE) and some other local authorities in the region to plan the roll out of the 30 hour childcare programme from September 2017.
 
We would like your feedback to help us plan for this and to understand current and future childcare use to make sure there are enough places available for working families. 
The online questionnaire should take approximately 10 minutes to complete and can be found at:
http://www.bolton.gov.uk/website/pages/Freeearlylearningandchildcare.aspx

Does the centre have a nursery on site?

The centre has no linked day care provision. Information about day care providers in the local area is available from the centre.

Are there any other services available at the centre that parents can access?

The Centre is shared with Horwich and Blackrod Libraries and also links up with Horwich Health Centre, Blackrod Health Centre and St Elizabeth's Church Hall for sessions.

Information is available on services and activities for children and their families including:

  • Registered childcare providers
  • Parent and Toddler groups
  • Disabled Children's Services
  • Leasure activities

Who can I contact for more help?

Administrators are based in the centre if you have any questions or need more information on any of the activities or services provided.
