  • Childcare Consultation Survey

    The Department for Education is currently consulting on proposed changes to the Early Years Foundation Stage including changes to some staff:child ratio in early years settings: https://consult.education.gov.uk.

    This study is being conducted alongside the consultation and collects important information needed to help understand how the proposed changes to the staff:child ratio might affect your childcare provision. Results from the research will help the government understand the impact of the proposed ratio changes and will be part of the body of evidence used to inform a decision on the proposed changes.

    This is your chance to have your voice heard and let us know how these changes may affect you.

    The research is being carried out by the National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) and Frontier Economics on behalf of the Department for Education.
