Childcare sufficiency assessment

Powys' third Childcare Sufficiency Assessment (CSA) 2014 has analysed the county's current childcare market, identified the gaps that exist and used this information to help develop the future strategy.

The childcare views of the county's parents, providers, employers, neighbouring local authorities and other agencies were collected during 2013 and 2014 as part of the CSA process.
