Employers For Childcare has launched its 10th annual Childcare Cost Survey and wants to hear your views on childcare in Tyrone and Banbridge.

Aoife Hamilton, Policy and Information Manager at Employers For Childcare: “We have been tracking the cost and provision of childcare in Northern Ireland for ten years now and we are interested in finding out how the landscape has changed since 2010, exploring what different trends and factors have influenced childcare provision and what this means for families”.

“This survey gives Tyrone and Banbridge parents the opportunity to have their voices heard. We know that experiences vary across Northern Ireland, and depending on a family’s circumstances, such as whether they live in a rural area, or have a child with a disability. Mums, dads and carers - whatever you have to say, we want to hear from you!

“This survey provides us with vital research which informs our lobbying work and gives us a platform to secure much needed investment in Northern Ireland’s childcare sector to ensure it meets the needs of both families and childcare providers.”

Aoife concludes: “Those parents who complete the short online survey will be entered into a draw to win a family overnight stay at the Galgorm Resort and Spa”.

The online survey is available: www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/ChildcareCostParents2019 or for more information call Employers For Childcare on 0800 028 3008.
