Wakefield Council has a statutory duty to ensure there are enough childcare places available across the Wakefield district. The Childcare Sufficiency Assessment is an annual survey of the local childcare market which ensures there are enough childcare places in the Wakefield district.
The Childcare Sufficiency Assessment reports on the childcare vacancies at present and also future forecasted childcare vacancies. The information provided in the Childcare Sufficiency Assessment helps identify gaps in the local childcare market and helps to plan future childcare needs.
