How to take part

You can share your views by completing this online survey. Paper surveys are available at your local children's centre. 

The consultation will close on 24 April 2024, 11:59pm.

Who do we need to hear from?

We are consulting service users, staff and anyone who could be affected, on proposals to make changes to the way some of our children’s centres deliver nursery provision in the future.

We welcome views from all residents. We would particularly like to hear from parents and carers of children who use children’s centres and future users of children’s centres, and professionals who support families.

What happens next?

We welcome all views and comments on the consultation proposals. No decision will be made on the proposals until after the consultation has closed. All responses to the consultation will be taken into consideration.

The responses to the consultation will be analysed, reported and shared on public platforms. The final decision on the proposals will be made by the Cabinet in Summer 2024.
