Views on childcare services in Northamptonshire sought

Families in Northamptonshire are being asked for their views to help the county council improve its childcare services.

An assessment of childcare provision is being carried out by the council over the coming weeks and it wants the views and experience of parents and carers.

The findings will be used to help officers draw up action plan to identify where improvement is needed.

The consultation, on the council website, ends on 19 February.

Andrew Grant, the council's cabinet member for children and young people, said: "We need to ensure that the supply of childcare services in the county is meeting demand, is of an acceptable quality and is accessible to all families.

"A particular focus of the survey is assessing the needs of families with disability needs, families from minority ethnic groups and families living on a low income, so we're keen to hear from parents in those groups."
