Childcare Sufficiency Assessment (CSA)
The Childcare Act 2006 places a duty on local authorities to make sure that there are enough childcare services for parents that want them, in order for them to work or train.
Childcare Sufficiency Score Cards 2016
The childcare sufficiency score cards cover sufficiency of childcare data across wards within Haringey.
In 2015, we carried out our second full childcare sufficiency assessment which identifies the supply and demand for childcare and any gaps in childcare provision.
